Well, it looks like the memory problems are solved for now by upping server capacity. A huge thanks to those who have helped out through the donation button on the left. I’m still looking at future options.
No surprise here, as Michele Leonhart had already decided on this just before Obama took office. But now the objections have been officially denied by the DEA.
One more bit of evidence (that we didn’t even need) that the government isn’t interested in the facts. And they certainly won’t give us our laboratory.
U.S. Approach to War on Drugs Ignores Dr. Kingâ€™s Lessons on Justice, Compassion by Robert Rooks, the National Criminal Justice Director for the NAACP.
Some will conclude that America has achieved equality because of President Obama, but I would argue the war on drugs shows we have a long way to go. After forty years of the war on drugs, America continues to have laws that stratify society based on race and class and continues to ignore Dr. Kingâ€™s lessons on justice, compassion and love.
My favorite quote from Dr. King speaks to the heart of the problem with Americaâ€™s criminal justice system. “Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.”
Americaâ€™s criminal justice system is reckless and discriminate.
