Kevin Zeese on Crime
A: Oppose. I've worked in the criminal justice system and have seen its flaws. We have had scores of people on death row who are not guilty of the crime they are convicted. We are too imperfect to allow the government to kill people. We can punish serious criminals in other ways that serve as a sufficient deterrent.
A: Oppose. These laws take the decision of sentencing out of the open court room and put them into the back room of the prosecutors and police office who decide whether to arrest or prosecute someone. We need to allow judges to make sentencing decisions in open court based on the facts and circumstances of each case. Mandatory sentencing has proven to result in consistent cases of injustice with major criminals getting off because they can inform on the co-conspirators, but minor members of a criminal conspiracy being unable to inform on those who are more culpable and more responsible for the broader conspiracy.
