GOP Senator: US Suffers From ‘Under-Incarceration Problem’...

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) said that the United States suffers from an “under-incarceration” problem in a Thursday speech rejecting a bipartisan criminal justice bill.

"Take a look at the facts,” Cotton told an audience at the conservative Hudson Institute think tank in Washington, D.C., according to Politico. “First, the claim that too many criminals are being jailed, that there is over-incarceration, ignores an unfortunate fact: for the vast majority of crimes, a perpetrator is never identified or arrested, let alone prosecuted, convicted, and jailed. Law enforcement is able to arrest or identify a likely perpetrator for only 19 percent of property crimes and 47 percent of violent crimes. If anything, we have an under-incarceration problem."

Cotton has spearheaded the effort to derail a bipartisan bill aimed at easing federal sentencing guidelines for non-violent offenders and allowing incarcerated offenders, many of whom were imprisoned on drug charges, to petition for reduced sentences. The bill was crafted by two Republican senators, John Cornyn of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah, and one Democratic senator, Dick Durbin of Illinois.

Cotton on Thursday referred to the legislation as a “criminal-leniency bill” and cautioned that reduced sentences would “allow for the release of violent felons from prison.”

As a veteran of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, Cotton warned of the effect of releasing former inmates back into their communities.

“I saw this in Baghdad. We’ve seen it again in Afghanistan," Cotton said in a question-and-answer session after his speech, according to Politico. "Security has to come first, whether you’re in a war zone or whether you’re in the United States of America.”

The Arkansas senator said he would support efforts to improve security within prisons and “promote rehabilitation,” but expressed skepticism for “Ban the Box” efforts and restoring former felons’ voting rights, according to Politico.

The United States held some 1,561,500 prisoners in state and federal correctional facilities at the end of 2014, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. As the American Civil Liberties Union notes, the U.S. has the highest number of people in jail of any country in the world.

This dude got David Duke and the Klan and Stormfront going all out volunteering for his campaign, this shit ain't a game........

    You must know that the crime bill that led to our current state of mass incarcerations specifically of poor black and latino people which led to the overcrowding and subsequent privatization of prisons where mostly nonviolent offenders are sentenced a disproportionate amount of time in relation to their crimes and end up having to work for just enough money to live while at the same time generating massive profits for others was all thanks to Bill Clinton with the support of Hillary, right?

    I'm not saying Trump would be any better but goddamn you couldn't have chosen a worse thread to make that statement in.

    "President Barack Obama signed a landmark law to change drug sentencing laws. The Fair Sentencing Act reduced the massive disparity between sentences handed down to crack cocaine and powder cocaine offenders, and in the years since its implementation, the number of federal prosecutions of crack cocaine offenders has been cut in half."

    Don't mind if I do
