  • U.S. to Meet Felons’ “Criminogenic Needs” in Jail; Education, Work, Life Skills Training

    04/28/2016 1:45:59 PM PDT · by jazusamo · 22 replies
    Judicial Watch ^ | April 28, 2016
    First the Obama administration managed to reduce prison sentences as a way of ending racial discrimination and now comes an aggressive plan to meet the “criminogenic needs” of felons by providing them with a series of perks the moment they’re incarcerated. This includes an education, employment and life skills training, substance abuse and mental health plans, building family relationships behind bars and a number of other programs to maximize their likelihood of success upon release. It’s called the Roadmap to Reentry and it’s part of a Department of Justice (DOJ) initiative to reduce recidivism among ex-cons. Work started around five...
  • Obama released 19,723 undocumented immigrants convicted of crime

    The chief of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) said on Thursday her agency released 19,723 undocumented immigrants last year who had been convicted of crimes, drawing a volley of criticism from Republican lawmakers. In a heated exchange at a congressional hearing into crime committed by illegal immigrants, Republicans grilled top Obama administration immigration official Sarah Saldana. The issue is at the heart of Republican demands for tighter control of U.S. borders and has often featured in rhetoric over immigration in the 2016 presidential election campaign. Saldana defended her record and pleaded for comprehensive immigration reform. "I cannot tell you...

    Some Dallas police officers will soon be toting “sponge guns,” weapons aimed at reducing the chances of a deadly officer-involved shooting. Police booster group Safer Dallas Better Dallas announced Thursday that it plans to raise $250,000 to help pay for more than 100 launchers that shoot sponge pellets. The “less lethal” weapons are meant to disarm and incapacitate someone from up to 100 feet away, police officials said.

    While the American public is incessantly regaled with tales of woe featuring illegal aliens and their downtrodden family members, the victims of our government’s endorsement of illegal immigration rarely have their voices heard. While the criminal negligence of municipal, state and federal agencies occasionally capture the attention of media outlets-as happened immediately after Kathryn Steinle’s senseless murder by a criminal alien in San Francisco-press coverage of this subject rapidly vanishes. That does not mean, however, that the number of victims is declining. To the contrary, this administration’s reckless policies of importing scores of new aliens-while giving amnesty to those currently...

Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes. [Snip] Meanwhile, ICE said that it has also slashed the number of...

    The only thing more shocking than murder of an entire family in rural Ohio might be to learn how big the area they grew marijuana in is to the international drug trade. Eight members of the Rhoden family, ranging in age from 16 to 44, were shot to death in four homes early Friday morning and three of those homes had considerable marijuana operations.

    Michigan Capitol Confidential ^ | 4/22/2016 | Jarrett Skorup
    In Michigan, prisoners who become eligible for parole begin a process that determines whether they will go free or remain behind bars. A proposed law, House Bill 5273 from Rep. Dave Pagel, R-Berrien Springs, would slightly change the process for those serving long criminal sentences. There are many steps involved in determining whether eligible people convicted in “lifer law” cases (crimes with long sentences outside of first-degree murder) can obtain parole. When a prisoner is up for parole and files for a review, one of the 10 parole board members is assigned to do a preliminary interview. That member can...

    While you couldn’t tell it from most of the headlines over the past 18 months, there’s actually some good news on the law enforcement front. Violent crime rates continued to drop over the past two years on a national per capita basis, including the murder rate. The motto of if it bleeds, it leads likely keeps the focus of many news media consumers on some regularly occurring violence, but overall we’re still experiencing record low levels of the worst violence in the modern era, as was described this past winter by the Washington Post. In 1993, there were seven...

At the same time, the city has seen a sharp jump in property crime, up more than 60 percent since 2010, though the actual increase may be higher because many of the crimes go unreported. A customer who came to have a broken window fixed, Dan Edmonds-Waters, showed San Franciscan forgiveness.

Clinton has even gone so far as to admit that the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994 had “unintended” negative effects in the same breath that she deflected the blame for it onto Bill.

Those attacking this law can’t really pose as advocates for black lives. They are advocates for criminals.” Concerned that the former president has “drifted off...

    Yes, a juror really did give Simpson the raised fist as he left the courtroom. His name was Lionel (Lon) Cryer, and as The New York Times reported, he was “a former Black Panther whom prosecutors had inexplicably left on the panel.” I’ll give you a minute to pick up your dropped jaw: Yes, there was an ex-Panther on the Simpson jury. Here he is in the Washington Post, commenting on the prosecution’s case against OJ: “It was garbage in, garbage out,” said Cryer, a former Black Panther Party member who raised his left arm in a clenched-fist salute to...

    Wall St is pretty certain Hillary Clinton will be president Jeff Cox | @JeffCoxCNBCcom http://www.cnbc.com/2016/04/06/wall-st-is-pretty-certain-who-will-be-president.html "While there's still plenty of time before the November election, markets are getting acclimated to the idea of a Clinton victory. Wall Street-related firms are Clinton's biggest contributor group, giving her just over $21 million of the total $159 million she has raised during her campaign, according to OpenSecrets." "An awful lot of investors view her as the devil they know as opposed to the devil they don't know," said Greg Valliere, chief global strategist at Horizon Investments and widely recognized as one of the...

    New York City’s cops say the town is in trouble – big trouble. The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York commissioned a survey of 6000 of its members and their opinions are sharply at odds with the rosy picture being projected by Democrat Mayor Bill de Blasio. In part its findings were, “The overall survey results show that members believe the relationship with the public and elected officials has worsened in the past few years, with a lack of support and respect for police officers the top reason cited. Members also expressed they personally feel 'less safe'...

    Brazil has been in crisis for some time now. The country’s economy shrunk -3.8% last year, and its President, Dilma Rousseff, is holding on for dear life. Once chairman of Petrobras, the state-run oil giant currently engulfed in a colossal political scandal, she is now being threatened with impeachment just 15 months into her second four-year yerm. Her approval remains at an all-time low of just 11%. The currency has halved in value since 2011, and the country’s credit has been downgraded to junk status. However, as VisualCapitalist's Jeff Desjardins explains, it’s not only the economic and political spheres that...

    The Obama administration released a warning Monday telling the nation’s landlords that it may be discriminatory for them to refuse to rent to those with criminal records. The Fair Housing Act doesn’t include criminals as a protected class, but the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says refusing to rent based on a criminal record is a form of racial discrimination, due to racial imbalances in the U.S. justice system. For instance, while blacks are about 12 percent of the U.S. population, they are about 36 percent of the prison population. Hispanics are also overrepresented behind bars, though to...

    Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson dismissed the possibility of deporting those entering the country illegally as "impractical. For all intents and purposes the 11 million already residing here are, in effect, US citizens." Johnson also expressed his distaste at deporting alien criminals on the grounds that "it would be both cruel and unusual. The home countries to which they would be deported are already suffering under crime rates far higher than we have here in the United States. Even if letting them stay here raises our crime rates it seems to me that this would provide for a...

So much so that he just can’t help himself from commuting sentences of more men and women than the past six presidents… COMBINED. Many who committed crimes with guns. Just this past Wednesday, Obama commuted the sentences of 61 “non-violent” federal inmates serving lengthy time, many serving jail jail time for carrying illegal guns. “They’re Americans who’d been serving time on the kind of outdated sentences that are clogging up our jails...
