Rand Paul A Closet Democrat Or just A Liberal?

Time

“The shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown is an awful tragedy that continues to send shockwaves through the community of Ferguson, Missouri and across the nation.

“Given these developments, it is almost impossible for many Americans not to feel like their government is targeting them. Given the racial disparities in our criminal justice system, it is impossible for African-Americans not to feel like their government is particularly targeting them.

This is part of the anguish we are seeing in the tragic events outside of St. Louis, Missouri. It is what the citizens of Ferguson feel when there is an unfortunate and heartbreaking shooting like the incident with Michael Brown.

Anyone who thinks that race does not still, even if inadvertently, skew the application of criminal justice in this country is just not paying close enough attention. Our prisons are full of black and brown men and women who are serving inappropriately long and harsh sentences for non-violent mistakes in their youth.”

 

Sounds like a Dem to me.

  1. I agree Roger, we have all heard the horror stories of someone going to jail/prison only to find out they were innocent of the charge(s) that sent them up. As for the disparity of who or what is imprisoned in my opinion has nothing to do with race. For the most part if a person is locked up, they are where they should be.

    There’s an old saying…”If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime”, I don’t care what color you are or if you worship a chicken.

    • Exactly. All we have to do is look at what these people have done (or NOT done) in the past during their “career” in politics. I suppose these dimwits think none of us peasants notice such things.

      What a fantasy world they live in.
