Drugs are increasingly becoming a scourge on upper-middle class white neighborhoods.  Of course these children will not be sent to jail at the same rates Black children are.

 

Indeed, much of the conversation now has now switched to treatment and prevention and an elimination of the harsh minimum sentencing lawws now that white kids are doing drugs like Heroine and Crystal Meth at greater rates than Black kids,

Excerpts from an article related to this subject.  I should think that Blacks will certainly benefit from these proposals.

 

Yesterday, the Obama Administration, by way of Attorney General Eric Holder, reaffirmed its support for a current proposal that, if passed, would nudge our nation's legal system a step in a more civil direction. Mr. Holder spoke Thursday before the U.S. Sentencing Commission, whose duty it is to vote annually on what sort of instructions need to be updated for federal judges to reference when handing down sentences on all of the various cases they see.

 

This April, the Sentencing Commission is considering a vote to overhaul the current recommended sentences for all federal nonviolent drug-related offenses.

The new regulations would cut federal drug sentencing by an average of 11 months per case in a move that Mr. Holder's Department of Justice says will apply to roughly 70% of future federal defendants accused in drug-related crimes - and he supports it.

Mr. Holder and President Obama have both publicly stated that, in their view, our current drug laws harass, arrest, and incarcerate a disproportionate number of minorities and lower class citizens, but any "bipartisan" support they hope to get for such a vote always comes down to money.

Under the proposed guidelines, federal prison rolls would decrease by over 6,500 inmates over the next five years. This can have an immediate fiscal impact on the cash-strapped communities supporting these overcrowded prisons, but not everyone is supportive of such a reduction in our prison populations.

Yes this should help reduce the number of folks locked up and the length of their sentences.

 

Black folks will be happy until crimes, fueled by illegal drug use and activity, begin to increase in our neighborhoods again. ;)
