63. With Regard to the Crime Bill, Sen Sanders tried numerous times to get the parts of the bill removed

that pertained to the harsh sentencing that was supported by the Clintons. You can see him on youtube arguing against.

The House version of the Crime Bill included a ban on semi-automatic assault weapons. Sanders had supported the ban since 1988. The conference committee version included not only the assault weapons ban but also the Violence Against Women Act provisions. Sanders supported these efforts to protect women. Shame on that try to smear him.

As far as Hillary Clinton let's review what Black Lives Matters has to say about her:
"Make no mistake, Hillary Clinton's efforts to push these policies resulted in the continued destruction of Black communities and the swift growth of our mass incarceration crisis.


The policies that she pushed filled the Prisons For Profits that in turn were very generous to her. Did she personally profit from these "tough" policies? Do her followers believe toughness is more important than empathy?
