Prisons In The United States

Original Article

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) said this week that it was time for the United States to have a serious conversation about “decarceration” and “prison abolition in this country.”“Mass incarceration is our American reality,” the former bartender tweeted. “It is a system whose logic evolved from the same lineage as Jim Crow, American apartheid, & slavery. To end it, we have to change. That means we need to have a real conversation about decarceration & prison abolition in this country.”Ocasio-Cortez continued, claiming without evidence: “Yesterday morning I spoke with a woman

Just confirms to me what liberals are thinking. Anything goes - they want it all and there should be no barriers to anything. Infantile. Democrats are jealous, faithless, greedy, dull, repetitive, infantile, irresponsible and dishonest. The list keeps growing and AOC is displaying her infantile tendencies.

She sure doesn't know her socialism very well. One of the hallmarks of that kind of tyranny is being able to incarcerate anyone who disagrees with the government at all. Dumping criminals of all stripes from the least violent up to the serial killer level is not going to ingratiate her to the voters. Not to mention the jobs lost in those prisons when they close. Why does she hate jobs?? Somebody in her district needs to force her to explain that.

You have to hope that all the Democrat candidates for President take up Alexandra Ocasio’s call to abolish prisons throughout the USA, and that the Democrats put that proposal as a plank in the Democrat nation political platform. That is sure to be a winner against President Trump in the 2020 general election!

What a great idea, Alex. The Nazis locked up people, we lock up people, ergo, we are like the Nazis. And just to show how silly it is, why not have a former rapist move in next door to you. On the other side, you could have Sam, that guy on 60 minutes that killed 60 people to satisfy his craving for pleasure.

Generally speaking, the term "prison" implies that the inmates are convicted felons. County jails and such are holding either those convicted of various misdemeanor offenses or those awaiting trial. OK. She wants to open all the prison? Fine. In an earlier, wiser age, conviction for a Felony AUTOMATICALLY meant execution, and that applies swiftly at that. Sounds good. There are, near me now and elsewhere as well, persons under the age of 30 who have already amassed two, three, or more felony CONVICTIONS. Out running around, generally acting much as they always did. Some of our less-than-ladylike females regard such as being a sign of a suitable sperm donor, ensuring that the pattern repeats, and it does. I am tired of being taxed to provide 3 hots and a cot for arsonists, drug pushers, burglars, contract killers, and the like Yes, empty the prisons. Via a gallows in the courtyards. Saves money, improves the society, and cleans the gene pool. All in favor?

I'm beginning to smell another behind-the-scenes rat here; we know she's stupid but nobody is this stupid. It's the art of the deal even if she's too thick to understand it. Somebody behind the curtain has a bucket of garbage worth nothing and they have her out there asking 100 bucks for it. Abolishing prisons? Maybe the dumbest thing she's said so far but it's out there now and the lamestream will run with it, guaranteed. Ok then, let's just stop building prisons and shut down half of them. Reasonable enough? So the bucket of garbage goes for 50 bucks. There's your useful idiot right there.

So . . . what do you do with murderers? Terrorists? Thieves? Politicians who have been convicted of what many of them are doing (i.e., engaging in corruption)? Is AOC suggesting we execute them? Probably not. Why doesn't she offer to host and counsel in HER HOME the next serial killer that is convicted in the United States? Keep talking, AOC. Shows how ridiculous you and your pals are.

Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts was the big winner Tuesday night in Westerville, Ohio in the most crowded presidential debate ever held. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Ind., also delivered strong performances. Former Vice President Joe Biden and the other eight candidates on stage came out the losers in the three-hour Democratic presidential primary debate. Warren’s strong performance will likely solidify her frontrunner status ahead of Biden and Sanders.

GALLIPOLIS, Ohio – I've been a journalist for 21 years. I've never struggled to write something as much as I have this column. The assignment: Go back to the place where I grew up, here in the middle of Ohio's Appalachian region across the river from West Virginia, talk to family and friends and my hometown people and offer a perspective on the heart of Trump country that few others in the media can. Trump won 76% of the vote in Gallia County three years ago, his largest margin among Southeast Ohio counties.
