During the past thirty years both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have been insisting that we have to lock up those who are criminals. At this moment in time about one out of four people in some sort of prison on this planet are in an American jail. One has to admit that America IS NUMGER ONE!! Yeah, we are NUMBER ONE, NUMBER ONE! Senator Rand Paul and Republican Congressman Raul Labrador, the person,not the dog, are making clear their desire to work with Democrats to ensure that those who are African American or of Hispanic origin, are not being targeted by police forces for a jail term. After all, white skinned foo also smoke some pot,but white skinned folk do not wind up in jail at the same rate as those who are dark skinned. (This blog refused to employ the silly expression, “people of color” since all humans are people of color).
OK, there is now a coalition of Republicans and Democrats to do something about the excessive number of blacks and Hispanics in jail. So, what must be done?
1. Make use of drugs legal. Heck,that solves the entire problem.
2. Pass rigid gun laws to prevent people from wandering around with weapons of destruction.
3. Train cops to be polite when encountering those with dark skins. Actually, talk with those people as though they worked on Wall Street.
