Likely Felon Hillary Clinton: Let's Open Up All the Prisons

It's time to "end the era of mass incarceration," the suspected embezzler says.

Vowing to "end the era of mass incarceration," presidential candidate Hillary Clinton called for sweeping changes to the country's criminal justice system on Wednesday as well as a recognition of "hard truths" about race and law enforcement tactics nationwide.

...

Listing the series of unarmed black men who have recently died after altercations with law enforcement -- including Freddie Gray, whose death while in police custody sparked riots in Baltimore this week -- Clinton said that the deaths should "galvanize" Americans to fight for change.

"My heart breaks for these young men and their families," she said. "We have to come to terms with some hard truths about race and justice in America."

The article does not say if she listed Michael Brown-- though I assume she did. WaPo black-and-gay-issues writer Jonathan Capeheart got a round of approbation for admitting that everything he thought he knew about the Brown shooting was a lie, and then, a couple of weeks later, listed Brown anyway in the List of the Fallen Black Innocents.

Hillary Clinton is claiming that our jailed are filled with the indiscriminately-imprisoned -- that "masses" of people are just winding up in jail.

It is one thing to call for criminal justice reform. It is another thing entirely to demagogue the issue from a hard leftwing viewpoint and claim that "masses" of prisoners -- most of them -- are essentially politically prisoners.

She also called for an end to armored vehicles, just as those are being used to quell the Baltimore riots:

The former New York senator also suggested that federal funds should be used to bolster public safety, not for "weapons of war that have no place on our streets."

Meanwhile, Governor Larry Hogan of Maryland puts an end to "tomfoolery," as Moe Lane puts it, having his guys snatch up a guy who was blatantly defying curfew (parading himself right before the National Guard. An armored Humvee -- a "weapon of war" in Ms. Clinton's parlance -- was used to execute the arrest.

Oh, BTW, Kermit the Frog told me he "can't wait" to vote for Hillary Clinton. But then, (Mild Content Warning) he's a little bent.
