Did anyone read the article? this isnt about the war on drugs. Its about unfair and unequal punishments for a crime.
under age Black commits armed robbery, gets 10 probation under the condition that if he violates probation with he will serve the sentence for the armed robbery. He violates probation with MJ and gets a life sentence
White man shoots and kills male prostitute in the back, gets 10 years probation. He violates probation by violating it with drug use (CRACK). White guy gets postcard probation- meaning he no longer takes drug tests, or meats with a Parole officer. all he has to do is send in a postcard to the courts to confirm his address.
I would hope that this is what the majority of people are angry over.
