End Mass Incarceration Now.
Empty the prisons of all non-violent offenders, and replace them with all the Republicans and Democrats who’ve been complicit in the “Negligent Homicide” of the 56,000+ Covid-19 deaths.
Go to any “right wing source” of news in the USA and there articles every day about a prisoner just released from Jail due to Covid committing another crime almost as soon as he was freed. They will continue to stoke this fear so as to make such initiatives impossible.
Yes, just as with any society there are people best kept behind bars as they pose to much a threat to others but this hardly 2+ million persons and there a whole lot of Politicians that are doing more harm and who are more corrupt then even the most violent of offenders that are locked away.
Yes, as through this world I’ve wandered
I’ve seen lots of funny men;
Some will rob you with a six-gun,
And some with a fountain pen.
And as through your life you travel,
Yes, as through your life you roam,
You won’t never see an outlaw
Drive a family from their home.
