In the last communication presented in several of the sites below, I spoke about a tradeoff in the passing of laws and our responsibility inherent in demonstrating our intents to our public servants, the politicians whom poses the bills for societal views. In other words, I said that when one door opens another closes and we’re getting laws in effect requiring us to stay focused in our support teams, our families and keeping one another FREE. In taking a gander at the Bill – SAFE Justice Reinvestment Act of 2015, TITLE I (IDENTIFYING AND REDUCING OVER-FEDERALIZATION AND OVER-CRIMINALIZATION BY RESPECTING THE BALANCE OF POWERS AMONG THE STATES AND THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT) – line 11 thru 20 states:
(a) COMPILATION AND PUBLICATION OF CRIMINAL OFFENSES. — Not later than January 1, 2016, and every year thereafter, the Attorney General shall, in consultation with relevant entities within the executive branch, compile a listing of the various Federal law violations that carry criminal penalties. To ensure that individuals have fair notice of prohibited conduct and the criminal penalties they bring, the Attorney General shall publicize the existence of this database and publish on the Department of Justice website.
This is the opening statement of the Bill about placing the responsibility of law in our hands as the Department of Justice, when this is passed, will list the crimes and punishment for those crimes so NO-ONE will have an excuse. This is tightening up the bolts and rearranging things in such a manner that it fits the old ingrains of law that Ignorance of the law is no excuse. Just as we strove and are striving to put our public servants’ feet to the fire, they too, are placing ours directly in the fire along side theirs. They are even creating a citizen monitoring systems for defendants to contact to let them know if there are prosecuting attorneys and the prosecuting attorneys’ agents that are conducting the defendants’ cases wrongfully.
They are connecting these type of things with the OFFICE OF RESPONSIBILITY. There is a call to Congress, and a plethora of entities in numerous departments in the State and Federal level. This entire picture of grass rooting and reactional responses to make changes only demonstrate the complacency that we ALL have gotten into. We ALL have fell asleep behind the wheel. So much tyranny has occurred, corruption and mass abuse in the fields of our lives. This is such the case that this Bill targets law enforcement officials and the proper monitoring to ensure that this group adhere to the ethics of their profession. They want to set up proper recordings and interrogations to ensure that the defendants’ constitutional rights are upheld. As stated above, as an example, the defendants and citizens has a task to accomplish as well.
The enlightenment of the upgraded system of criminal justice; there are countless antiquated laws on the books, racially motivated and stimulated laws which imposes draconian sentences, or draconian penalties as a whole (mandatory minimums and maximum sentences). The point here is, the Bigger view we must look at in this Bill is the RESPONSIBILITY of the grass rooting for change and to build from it. We too are experts of living, being exposed to prison, experiencing the ups and downs of injustices, and the host of other experiences we can bring to the table for change. Within the name of this Bill is “Reinvestment” (we are our best investments).
We are speaking about a financial crisis occurring that affects every last one of us. We are talking about stockpiling human beings. We are discussing taxpayers’ funds. We are speaking on various levels and mechanics in keeping the web of events and areas of life flowing. We do not live unto ourselves but are tested by the circumstances, situations, ordeals and friction of countless people. We are in a melting pot and everyone will feel the heat at one point or another. Like compost, the heat will come to our front doors sooner or later and the senses of it will be offensive, are offensive. Alternative means releases this pressure and opens the way for a better productivity of our society.
A society is only as good as its citizens and its citizens’ ability to prosper. When you have a leak and that crack gets bigger and bigger, eventually everyone will be effected. We must have the gumption, the initiative, to be more proactive. Take for instance the crack cocaine epidemic. Change in this arena took approximately 20 years. We know the effects of that and the litigation stemming from that branch of criminal justice. The subject matter Bill – SAFE Justice Reinvestment Act of 2015 – speaks on these levels of accuracy of convictions that ranges in its process of guard shacks erected as a gatekeeper before a person is introduced into the harsh conditions of prison. The word diversion is used in the Bill for the creation of programs, fines, bond, civil remedies and the host of preemptive strikes to not incur upon the taxpayers – YOU – unnecessary expenditures and expenses.
Can we be successful?? Certainly!!! They (and accessible to us all) have the empirical data to prove it. Case-in-chief: the BOP has an administrative remedy program for complaints from prisoners. These are tallied up and acted upon on a large scale in the course of time. Policy (regulations) is created from this as well as the infractions we obtain in a course of time also creates policy, the cause and effect relationship bearing facts to move towards a goal or a revised one. This same principle operates in the court system of justice, on all the appropriate levels of governance. The data is as wide as it is long, as exampled from the above paragraph of the intent to place on Notice the prohibited conduct and it a joining punishment.
The Bill further discusses a record keeping system in its tentacle reach of application of data of the success of the implementations therein. We are exposed to some crumbs to make a loaf and feed the masses. This is rightly dividing the words of Facts and Truth of Integrity. This is indeed, in light of history, one of the most prominent steps in the justice system. We are not fighting for nothing, the FACTS of the matter(s) demonstrate it. Let the accumulation of facts and the truth of dignity be our guides. The writing is on the wall. This should breed more confidence in our fights in life for justice, freedom and equality. A society-country which educates its citizens (even the incarcerated ones) empowers a civilization and creates the building blocks for the next generation.
From a holistic approach, this is a chance to revive and deter the destructiveness that our society has been moving towards. Being the Greatest Nation in the world, it ranks low on the rung of justice to its citizens, more so the black and brown races. In other words, we incarcerate more of our citizens than any other Country in the world. This scores improper on the Universal Scale of Justice. It signifies a deep rooted problem in our Country. This Bill highlights these things in many words. It is a call that we exclaimed from the mountain tops to the valley below. Our cries has not gone unanswered but it comes back to us with a correct price: RESPONSIBILITY. It can flow with the golden rule: Do unto others as you’ll have them do unto you.
Being elevated individuals in the scheme of creation, we must use our intelligence and cooperation to not allow our civilization to fall to low extremes. This is a lesson to look at ourselves individually and collectively. Speaking about prison, it can be real geographical or segregation in action but the Fact of the matter is we are all under the same provisions and regulations. The same runs true to our visitors when they come visit us, and the same run true for the governing laws of our country, from administrative-local government-State and Federal laws. We breathe the same air of other countries. 🙂
Wherever we go we shall brush against people and where ever we find ourselves we will need people. Being in a country with people, it is the people that come together on common ground and leaving the small things aside to satisfy lasting prosperity. Isn’t this the basis of America’s success??? Didn’t we not pool our resources, labor, struggles together for common causes??? Wasn’t the basis of America’s inception a call for Freedom???? This is what makes America that Great in which we seek Freedom and the Enjoyment of Life, the life blood of survival for everyone!!!!
Let us ALL make it count and cherish every moment of the Freedom that we have and protect from the smallest to the greatest means. Continue the fight, we are all involved.
