John Kerry on overcrowded prisons


From the Washington Times today:

"Talking about education yesterday, Mr. Kerry also told the largely black crowd at the day care center that there are more blacks in prison than in college.

"'That's unacceptable,' he said. 'But it's not their fault.'

"Rather than the inmates, the former Boston prosecutor blamed poverty, poor schools, a dearth of after-school programs and 'all of us as adults not doing what we need to do.'"

This is a man who may well be president. I hope people pay close attention to his views on such matters.
