Okay, lots of people debating me today on Trump vs. Biden on #cjreform

This is LITERALLY from Trumps website and was posted August 23d

Notice where he says "end cashless bail" meaning EVERYONE who does not have money for bail will be detained… Image
Now, look at Biden's site: Image
Before a few months ago, the Federal Death Penalty had not been used in YEARS....Since Barr and Trump reinstated the Federal Death Penalty, four people have been executed and the fifth is coming soon…

(hella long) THREAD on #bailreform & #PoliceViolence
Here’s the deal: last year NY passed bail reform legislation that mandated pretrial freedom for 90% of folks going through the system. It was a huge win for black people, poor people & the movement to end pretrial jailing.
It also SIGNIFICANTLY checked the power of law enforcement to use pretrial jailing as a tool to terrorize black NYers. The reforms meant that tens of thousands of people now couldn’t be jailed and held hostage just based on an arrest.
Pretrial jailing is a direct extension of police power. The #ExoneratedFive, #KaliefBrowder, #LayleenPolanco are all examples of black people who suffered horrible violence and tremendous consequences from being locked up pretrial as a result of racist cops & racist arrests.

The power of a Black woman! #KamalaHarris lead with conviction I protest of Trump's award & treatment of students. Thanks to #Kamala's principled stand #BenedictCollege & its students will be centered at this forum rather than the org that unjustifiably gave Trump an award.
Only ONE candidate in this race stood up for the students of #BenedictCollege. Only ONE person stood up against the normalization of Trump's deplorable record which includes calling for the execution of the #ExoneratedFive. That person is #KamalaHarris and #JusticeIsOnTheBallot!
#KamalaHarris speaks directly to #BenedictCollege students. Yesterday students were told to stay in their dorms & only SEVEN were allowed to attend the forum. HBCU students will never be forced to take a back seat under #Kamala's watch! #KHive #Kamala2020

Let’s be very clear: Neera is just talking about Trump.

Innocent people I represent waive their rights & speak with authorities all the time & it never helps.

“Anything you say can & will be used against you.”

The #exoneratedfive cooperated & look where it got them.
There are a million reasons for an innocent person not to speak or not to testify and it is their constitutional right. We already have enough trouble getting jurors not to hold not testifying against them.
Also just in case there’s any question, rules are very different in criminal cases versus impeachment proceedings.

I do not know why it is news that Trump is a total & complete asshole.
Trump was nasty to an employee when he coughed.

The guy calls for the literal imprisonment of political opponents everyday!
Trump was nasty to an employee when he coughed.

He separates, kidnaps & cages Latino children and loses them and wants to be “harsher.”
