    Default It's Time to Let Felons Vote, Holder Says

    Read the entire article here: http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/...er-says-n26906

    A selected quote:
    Attorney General Eric Holder is calling for an end to state laws that bar felons from voting, even after they have served their sentences.

    "By perpetuating the stigma and isolation imposed on formerly incarcerated individuals, these laws increase the likelihood they will commit future crimes," Holder said Tuesday at a Washington, D.C., symposium on sentencing laws.

    Holder said the restrictions bar 5.8 million Americans from casting a ballot, including 2.2 million African-Americans.

    So now he wants to give felons (note over 25% are black) back their voting rights. Next he'll be wanting to give them their gun rights back. But the vets are mentally sick so take their's away.

    how about things to deter crime like loosing rights an privileges if you are a criminal instead .

    What ever happened to don't commit crimes in the first place ????????????????

    The Democrats are really scrapping the bottom of the barrel for votes.

    Im sorry but when 1 out of every three black men will go to prison at some point in there lives I can only see Holders ideas for this as racially motivated. I bet if the tables were turned he would not be endorsing stupid an dangerous idea .

    I think Holder should be banned from his position, but fat chance of that with Barky as POTUS.

    The inmates are now in charge of the asylum.

    BTW a little bird told me Holder is going to resign later this year in a last ditch effort to duck prison, which might just happen after the next election.

    "Holder said the restrictions bar 5.8 million Americans from casting a ballot, including 2.2 million African-Americans." This is really what he cares about. Why did he need to spell this out? He's not identifying latino Americans, asian Americans....why because he only cares about the black vote. Not being raciest here just pointing out the fact he is......

    Restore their Second Amendment rights as well - Once they serve their time and pay back their debt to society then restore all their Constitutional Rights.

    Well, Thats my stance. Now a repeat offender or ultra violent crimes, maybe not but a lot of people F-up and do not get caught. Once your debt is paid in full, it should be over.
