Bernie Sanders called for America’s prison population to be cut in half.

I would love for a single Mainstream journalist to ask him who should be let out.

According to The Washington Post over 50% of inmates have committed violent crimes.

How many people are incarcerated for “nonviolent crimes including possession of marijuana”? Not as many. At the federal level, 47.5 percent of prisoners (81,900) were serving a sentence of any length at the end of September 2016 after being convicted of a drug offense as their most serious crime. But doesn’t just include drug possession, it includes all kinds of drug offenses. “More than 99% of federal drug offenders are sentenced for trafficking,” according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.

Moreover, separate data from the U.S. Sentencing Commission show that only 92 people were sentenced for marijuana possession in the federal system in 2017, out of a total of nearly 20,000 drug convictions.

We also have to realize that drug offenses are crimes and the idea that these people shouldn’t be in jail is complete nonsense.
