Sentencing enhancements sound great to the white elites who run California. The sheep that continue to vote for them feel safer.
The last time the U.S. was facing a terrible drug epidemic that was wreaking havoc on communities, brutally racist California instituted a series of extra punishments and longer jail sentences for “chronic” drug offenders.
Chronic, as in the poor, the homeless, the mentally ill, and people of color…not the white elites.
Meanwhile, harsh jail terms have been incredibly expensive for taxpayers, and they’ve eroded the prospects and stability of our communities.
Not to mention they’ve done nothing to stop Americans from sucking, snorting and slamming illegal drugs at a mind-boggling rate unlike anywhere else on the planet.
Face it…Americans love drugs…and racist California loves brutalizing those that can’t defend themselves.
