Somebodies Baby is Coming Home...!!...

According to the L.A. Times, a proposal is being reviewed by the U.S. Sentencing Commission that would shave an average of at least two years of the sentence of 19,500 federal prisoners. More than 2,500 of them who have already served long sentences would be eligible for release if the rule is implemented within a year of the ruling. The reason for this is the unfair laws that are placed on crack cocaine dealers and users, versus powder cocaine cases. Get this.. 80% of those sentenced on federal crack cocaine charges every year are African Americans...The reason for the tough crack laws are due the crime that it causes and its highly addictive nature.

Really this story made me think...Why?? Would you the government 'throw away the key' on the crack dealers? Is it just an easy way to deal with the problems in the streets? The government thinks that this is the best way to deal with the problems in the inner city. I have an idea put better education in the inner city and more opportunities so that people don't turn to drug abuse and selling drugs. All they need is more options.

If some people had more to chose from they wouldn't always choose the bad....We need more good.

Oh, yeah....Keep yah eye out for the new artist coming out on Cook Crack Records :)
