Pretty much no other way to put it. You'd think liberals would care about not letting innocent people rot in jail.
I HAD HAD SEX WITH HUNTER S THOMPSON. HE CAME IN MY MOUTH AND I SWALLOWED IT. I SHOULD HAVE HAD HIS BABY. WE WOULD BE BALLIN' LIKE KOBE'S SON!!
"Decades ago, Congress made it a federal crime for convicted felons to have a gun. The law proved to be a powerful tool for police and prosecutors to target repeat offenders who managed to escape stiff punishment in state courts."
What law did that? I think it was the Brady Law. It seems relevant to the story.
The most fatuous part of this fatuous story is where the Justice Department genius goes through the files and finds several dozen men who shouldn't be in prison. But rather than doing anything about it they make wholesale statements about how it's the Public Defender who should discover ON THEIR OWN who is in prison wrongly. No notification, no assistance with the courts, not even sending a xerox of a pardon or commutation application to the men. I can nearly guarantee that several multiples of time have been spent keeping Holder's ass out of trouble over this Fast 'N Furious shingdig rather than actually protecting legally innocent Americans from wrongful incarceration. C'mon, man.
If this is how they roll then the Justice Department should be abolished.
America! I could teach you, but I'd have to charge.
The Innocence Project is one of the main orgs dedicated to getting innocent people out of prison, for those interested in volunteering or donating.
Here's a list of similar orgs.
I got more styles than prison got bricks- ain't that some shit?
