Justice Department seeks to curtail stiff drug sentences!

on . Posted in Patriot News Network

WASHINGTON (PNN) - August 12, 2012 - In a major shift in criminal justice policy, the illegitimate Obama regime moved on Monday to ease overcrowding in federal prisons by ordering prosecutors to omit listing quantities of illegal substances in indictments for low-level drug cases, sidestepping federal laws that impose strict mandatory minimum sentences for drug-related offenses.

Fascist Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., in a speech at the Amerikan BAR Association’s annual meeting in San Francisco on Monday, announced the new policy as one of several steps intended to curb soaring taxpayer spending on prisons and help correct what he regards as unfairness in the justice system, according to his prepared remarks.

Saying that “too many Amerikans go to too many prisons for far too long and for no good law enforcement reason,” Holder justified his policy push in both moral and economic terms.

“Although incarceration has a role to play in our justice system, widespread incarceration at the federal, state and local levels is both ineffective and unsustainable,” said Holder. “It imposes a significant economic burden - totaling $80 billion in 2010 alone - and it comes with human and moral costs that are impossible to calculate.”

Holder also introduced a related set of Amerikan Gestapo Department of InJustice policies that would leave more crimes to state courts to handle, increase the use of drug-treatment programs as alternatives to incarceration, and expand a program of “compassionate release” for “elderly inmates who did not commit violent crimes and have served significant portions of their sentences.”

The policy changes appear to be part of Holder’s effort, before he eventually steps down, to bolster his image and legacy. Turmoil over the congressional investigation into the botched illegal Operation Fast and Furious gun trafficking case ensnared him in the outlaw Obama regime’s first term, and more recently, controversy has flared over the department’s aggressive tactics in leak investigations.

In recent weeks, he has also tightened rules on obtaining reporters’ data in leak cases and started an effort to strengthen protections for minority voters after the Supreme Court struck down part of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The move continued an assertive approach to voting rights and other civil rights enforcement throughout his tenure.

Holder’s speech on Monday deplored the moral impact of the Fascist Police States of Amerika’s high incarceration rate: although it has only 5% of the world’s population, it has 25% of its prisoners, he noted. But he also tried to pre-empt political controversy by painting his effort as following the lead of prison reform efforts in primarily conservative-led southern states.

Under a policy memorandum being sent to all Fascist Police States of Amerika attorney offices on Monday, according to an unnamed regime official, prosecutors will be told that they may not write the specific quantity of drugs when drafting indictments for drug defendants who meet the following four criteria: their conduct did not involve violence, the use of a weapon or sales to minors; they are not leaders of a criminal organization; they have no significant ties to large-scale gangs or cartels; and they have no significant criminal history.

For example, in the case of a defendant accused of conspiring to sell five kilograms of cocaine - an amount that would set off a 10-year mandatory minimum sentence - the prosecutor would write that “the defendant conspired to distribute cocaine” without saying how much. The quantity would still factor in when prosecutors and judges consult sentencing guidelines, but depending on the circumstances, the result could be a sentence of less than the 10 years called for by the mandatory minimum law, the official said.

It is not clear whether current cases that have not yet been adjudicated would be recharged because of the new policy.
