Unprecedented Drug Crisis? No Problem. Release The Drug Traffickers!

On Thursday, Politico let the cat out of the bag regarding the ultimate goal of the “criminal justice reform” movement. This is not about declining to lock up nonviolent people for petty crimes. We actually release and often fail to convict violent criminals. This is about abolishing the entire concept of prison and its deterrent of crime.
Last week, over 100 people dropped like flies in New Haven, Connecticut, after overdosing on K2 synthetic marijuana that was laced with fentanyl. This has been a growing problem for several years: The sale of fake marijuana packaged as candy but laced with rat poison. The proceeds have been tracked back to Yemen. Now, it appears that other drug traffickers are understanding how easy it is to spray these leaves with all sorts of chemicals. The individual who was arrested, Felix Melendez, had been previously arrested for possessing K2 in February but was out on the streets on probation despite four prior felonies, according to the Hartford Courant.
This is exactly the type of person who is already getting leniency in the state system, and this is exactly the type of person Chuck Grassley, Jared Kushner, and the gang of jailbreak want released from federal prison. They built an entire movement on a false premise that we are somehow locking up onetime nonviolent offenders for simple possession, when in fact we are not prosecuting and are even releasing countless dangerous drug traffickers who are killing many, many people.
This is an epidemic we’ve never seen before. It’s no longer a recreational drug issue, but a poison issue that affects national security. Yet these people believe we are not being lenient enough on the drug traffickers at a time when they are killing more people than ever.
