True Facts On Number Of Imprisoned Drug Offenders

You're getting very sleepy... Your eyelids feel heavy... You must believe everything I tell you because I am the President

You’re getting very sleepy… Your eyelids feel heavy… You must believe everything I tell you because I am the President.  Our prisons are full of minorities because the criminal justice system is racist

Obama is either deliberately lying or ignorant of the true facts when he declares that the imprisonment of nonviolent drug offenders is “the real reason our prison population is so high”

When President Obama addressed the NAACP annual convention in Philadelphia July 14, he bemoaned the high incarceration rate of black nonviolent drug offenders and called for reform of the criminal justice system. He blamed our mass incarceration on the large number of nonviolent drug offenders sent to prison. Obama also said that mass incarceration prevents too many people, especially minority men, from contributing to society, the economy, and their children’s lives.

Obama is either deliberately lying or ignorant of the true facts when he declares that the imprisonment of nonviolent drug offenders is “the real reason our prison population is so high.”

“The Real Answer To Mass Incarceration,” an article by Gilad Edelman which was published the week of July 12 in The New Yorker, lays out the true facts about the number of inmates serving time for nonviolent drug offenses. The article notes that Obama is perpetrating a myth long held by prison reformers. The truth is, that while drug offenders make up about half of all federal prison inmates, they make up only 16 percent of the inmate population in state prisons. And the article noted that the federal prisons hold only 200,000 inmates, while the total number held in state prisons is 1.3 million inmates. (more…)

Planned Parenthood’s Femme Fatales Exposed! A Win-win for Women! Perhaps morality in America is beyond repair. Still, as a man of faith, I remain hopeful. In spite of attempts to deny, distract, and distance themselves from a looming scandal, liberals, especially the liberal press, cannot counter the alarming disclosures coming from the mouths of the upper echelon of Planned Parenthood. These Mermaids of Monstrous Surgeries (MOMS) have been caught on secretly videotaped discussions (by a pro-life group) boasting openly about using other women to turn profits from harvested human baby parts for scientific research.

Break Out the Tissue: It’s Soylent Green, the Sequel The latest scandal concerning human life centered on a surreptitious videotaping by two actors (released this week, but filmed a year ago) of a medical director from Planned Parenthood named Deborah Nucatola (see video posted at the end of this article.) In the video, while eating lunch, Director Nucatola described methods for extracting lungs, and livers, and limbs from live fetuses during abortion procedures to preserve them for scientific research experimentation. Her descriptions reminded me of a World War II era Nazi doctor named Josef Mengele,

Illegal Immigration: What Should Never Have Happened

When the Alarms Sound, There is a Fire As has been previously stated at Pacovilla.com, the rule of law and the enforcement of law are both the boundaries of good conduct as well as the sanctions for bad conduct. No murderer was ever prevented from taking a human life by the notion of law anymore than a motorist was prevented from speeding down the freeway by a posted speed limit sign. However, enforcement of the law often changes behavior and consistent enforcement generally minimizes lawlessness. One need only take a glance across our southern border

Imagine Granny being terminated by the State because her care was simply too costly.
The Secular Left and the Moral Low Ground

The State and the Easier Choice Where the secular and religious political-left in California are concerned, the State has no authority to execute a lawfully condemned murderer. Religious leftists, particularly those in the Christian church, morally object to execution on the general belief that only God can take a life since he created it in the first place. I guess all the murderers who have and continue to take the lives of others ( by, in a broader sense, executing their victims) are exempt from adherence to that conscientious principle. Never mind that Jesus, the

Judges, Lawyers, and Sex Criminals: Your world is not all it seems Richard Krupp, PhD July 7, 2015 Recent court decisions at the federal and state level serve to remind me how much verbal garbage spews from the mouths of these legal eagles and how similar the verbal garbage is to that spewed by sex criminals. What do they have in common? What can you believe? Let’s take a look at some of the recent fancy verbal footwork and how it impacts normal people.

Advocates for prison reform love to stir the pot without considering what the stew contains
Prisons Are Not Playgrounds

Recipe For Prison Harmony, Just Ad-Seg There seems to be a distinct disconnect in the public’s perception of proverbial prison life versus the reality of State-run institutionalized care for criminals. Prison advocacy and special interest groups, as well as political hacks, are often responsible for this confusion. For the sake of argument, let’s simplify some definitions. Criminals are, by the nature of their bad behaviors, bad people. They willingly break laws—a lot of laws. Law-abiding citizens, by the absence of criminal behavior, are good people. Good people generally frown upon law-breaking. Prisons were built by

Why on Earth would an instrument of suffering and death be revered? Bearing Witness

Chain of Evidence: The Cross and the Empty Tomb As a general rule, in a court of law evidence is presented in a case before a judge and/or jury to establish a set of facts material to a matter before the court. Evidence can be physical, tangible objects which help to paint a clearer picture, or eyewitness testimony, which tells a story of what happened. Any physical object without a story behind it proves nothing. For example, a bloody knife presented before a jury has no meaning unless an inference through a relationship can be
