Re: Kim, why the push for votes against you?

Wasn't Jean Jean put into prison for stealing a loaf of bread? That would not be felony and no loss of voting rights would result. For rapists, murderers, and other psychopaths, a humane execution would probably answer a lot of issues and for the remainder of the prison population, sentences proportionate with the crime would have society content that justice has been served. After a lengthly probabtion, then and only then would I favor voting rights restoration.

 

If the original crime, such as possession of a small amount of drugs, ceased to be a felony, I would propose that those that had been convicted under prior law and judged to be felons, would have their records expunged.
