Rand Paul calls for decriminalizing everything that disproportionately incarcerates blacks
Rand Paul is backpedaling after making the ludicrous statement “I see an America where criminal justice is applied equally and any law that disproportionately incarcerates people of color is repealed.”
Black Americans commit murder at nine times the white rate. That means that Rand Paul would have to repeal laws against murder.
Rand Paul campaign spokesman Eleanor May is now saying that Rand Paul only meant “non-violent crimes.”
Is shoplifting non-violent? Blacks typically commit shoplifting at astronomical rates compared to whites. We have already seen a black British MP call for decriminalizing shoplifting to keep black people out of trouble with the law.
Does Rand Paul wants to give everyone a free pass to shoplift?
