  •  An act of Justice? (4+ / 0-)

    America stole these folks lives and families away from them.  And having rent these lives apart, we what?  Commute their sentences, dump them on the streets with no community and no job skills or prospects and pat ourselves on the back for giving them their freedom back??  Who will house them?  Who will teach them?  Who will employ them?  Who will care for them??  Will America welcome them back into the bosom of society, help them learn to be independent, productive, responsible citizens?  THIS America?  Don't make me laugh.
    It can be done, and it SHOULD be done, but commuting the sentences of these thousands is only the beginning.
    It makes me weep..

      Sense??

      Hah Hhah hhhahhh hah!!

      Congress has little to no common sense- and that is one of the 12 or so critical problems we now face as a nation.
