There are neighborhoods where mostly black people live that have massive crime problems. How does removing the criminals from those neighborhoods harm black people? If anything it helps. I used to live in such a neighborhood and I would have been glad to see any criminal removed from the streets.

Comments like that OP will get you banned from the democrat hive mind collective !!!
Criminals must be protected to keep crime high and keep getting democrats elected to fix it !!! If there is no crime democrats are quickly out of a job !!!
The promise to do something is more necessary to democrats than following through on the promise !!!

Look at how well Baltimore's initiative to keep young black men out of prison worked! Low crime and prosperity reigns!


Their assumption is that they are all innocent and thus illegally incarcerated. Perhaps they are guilty after all. There are some people who are mistakenly incarcerated. But let's face it- the vast majority of people in prison are guilty.


By reducing the number of criminal in prison, they have essentially made the neighborhoods prisons without physical walls. However, there are economic walls that reduce mobility, so this system has turned many urban areas into defacto prisons, kind of like "Escape from New York".

You could read one of a hundred books on the subject. Or you could just post here and argue to fill your day.

The choice is yours: knowledge vs waste of time.

Them that commits crimes worthy of incarceration. Thieves, rapists, murderers, drug dealers, extortionists, those guilty of assault, child molestation, ect...................... you know what a criminal is. Suggesting that many who are incarcerated are there inappropriately is absurd.


We all J-walk, but are not criminals.

I understand what you are saying, and putting violent criminals behind bars is good for the communities those violent criminals live in. It's just a band aid though, and doesn't get to the root of the problem. You can't just throw everyone in jail. At some point the violent criminals outnumber our capacity or even our right to incarcerate them all, and some of our inner city neighborhoods have reached that point. American citizens should not have to live like that.

There's not much point to anyone posting here on any topic, really. It accomplishes nothing, yet every single one of us here still does it.
