Sleepy Joe Biden not likely to get Black American vote due to Controversial “Super Predator Crime Bill”

Sleepy Joe Biden not likely to get Black American vote due to Controversial “Super Predator Crime Bill”

Super Predator was the term associated with the 1994 Crime Bill. It offered more federal money for states that adopted the “truth-in-sentencing” laws, which ensured violent offenders serve at least 85 percent of their sentences.

And the crime bill introduced the “three strikes” rule that gave mandatory life sentences without parole to people convicted of three or more serious violent felonies or drug trafficking crimes.

“It has been well-documented that these policies were failures,” concluded a report by the Center for American Progress, a liberal think tank, which analyzed the Crime Bill’s impact.

In 2016, Biden said he is not ashamed of his role in writing the 1994 Crime Bill and defended its record. “The problem is institutional racism in America. That’s the overarching problem that still exists and we should be talking about.

Donald Trump has hit out at Joe Biden saying that black Americans won’t vote for the Democrat because he was behind the tough 1994 ‘Super Predator’ Crime Bill.

Biden – who was a Delaware senator at the time – was instrumental in pushing for the bill, which critics blamed for a dramatic increase in the number of black people being sent to prison.     

‘Anyone associated with the 1994 Crime Bill will not have a chance of being elected. In particular, African Americans will not be ble (sic) to vote for you,’ Trump tweeted on Monday. 

‘I, on the other hand, was responsible for Criminal Justice Reform, which had tremendous support, and helped fix the bad 1994 Bill!’ 

In a second tweet, Trump wrote: ‘….Super Predator was the term associated with the 1994 Crime Bill that Sleepy Joe Biden was so heavily involved in passing. That was a dark period in American History, but has Sleepy Joe apologized? No!’

Biden wrote the bill when he was a Delaware senator before it was passed by Congress with bi-partisan support and then signed into law by President Bill Clinton as the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act. 

The bill later came under intense criticism when those opposing it said it resulted in higher numbers of black Americans being jailed on drug charges.

Opponents also blamed for the bill for an increase in incarceration rates across the country. 

Trump, who has loudly backed bipartisan efforts for a criminal justice reform since becoming president, infamously took out a full page ad in the New York Times in 1989 calling for the death penalty to be reinstated and more police.

The ad was placed during the time when the ‘Central Park Five’ were jailed for the attack of a Central Park jogger. The group of teens were later exonerated but Trump continued to say they were guilty.  

The 1994 Crime Bill has been a shadow on Biden’s campaign since he announced he was running for president last month. 

The bill is the largest of its kind in the history of the U.S. It provided for 100,000 new police officers, as well as $9.7 billion in funding for prisons and $6.1 billion in funding for prevention programs.

The bill included the now infamous ‘three strikes’ mandatory life sentence for repeat offenders, which disproportionately affected African-Americans.

It also offered billions of dollars for new prisons to states if they increased their percentage of convicted violent offenders and increased the percentage of the sentence they actually served.

Within a decade, the prison population skyrocketed from 1,179,200 people to 2,015,300 people. 

While Clinton, who signed the bill into law, has walked back on his support in recent years, Biden has not wavered. 

Clinton even acknowledged at one point in 2015 that he ‘made the problem worse’.

‘That was overdone. We were wrong about that. That percentage of it, we were wrong about,’ he said.

‘I signed a bill that made the problem worse, and I want to admit it.’ 

Biden fought hard for the bill in 1994, making it clear he believed it was integral to protecting American society from those who were ‘beyond the pale’.

‘We have no choice but to take them out of society,’ he said. ‘It doesn’t matter whether or not they were deprived as a youth, it doesn’t matter whether or not they had no background that enabled them to become socialized into the fabric of society. It doesn’t matter whether or not they’re the victim of society.’

‘The end result is, they’re about to knock my mother in the head with a lead pipe, shoot my sister, beat up my wife, take on my sons. So I don’t want to ask what made them do this. They must be taken off the streets, that’s number one.’

    One thing is one of the most widespread incentives for using your credit cards is a cash-back or perhaps rebate present. Generally, you get 1-5 back for various expenditures. Depending on the credit cards, you may get 1 again on most expenses, and 5 in return on expenses made in convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores and also ‘member merchants’.

    Thanks for expressing your ideas. I’d also like to say that video games have been ever before evolving. Modern tools and inventions have served create authentic and active games. These entertainment video games were not really sensible when the real concept was first of all being used. Just like other kinds of technological innovation, video games way too have had to advance through many years. This itself is testimony towards the fast development of video games.

    Just about all of whatever you say is astonishingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. This particular article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this specific topic goes. Nevertheless there is just one factor I am not too comfy with so whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual core theme of the point, permit me observe what all the rest of your subscribers have to point out.Nicely done.
