SORT BY Relevancy
At this writing, I've not gone into great detail on Barack Obama's criminal justice system "reforms", as they apply to the "rights" of ex-felons, as they attempt to re-fold into civic life.
As I understand, there is much ado, regarding disclosures on job applications, which arguably, has precluded former inmates' ability to obtain an honest job, and be able to create distance between their past violations and present life-circumstances.
In this, one can argue that this very policy, as it severely limits one's ability to function in his or her "new" society, puts such persons in a situation where a return to crime is inevitable, so of course, questions arise as to the very purpose of incarceration, and the perception that these long-standing policies, including the loss of the privilege to vote, were at their inception, targeted at black Americans.
How can these policies be justified, if one has "paid their debt to society"?
Indeed, there are many people, ex-felons, given a chance to more forward, who have indeed proven themselves worthy of respect, honor and being seen as living examples of Allah's / God's redemption.
On the other hand, what about their victims; When and how are they "paid"?
I will research this issue in more depth, so we will have a most meaningful:

"We have to understand that an attack on one faith is an attack on all our faiths, the mosque outside of Baltimore, received threats twice in the past year. When any religious group is targeted, we all have a responsibility to speak up.Think of your own church or synagogue or temple, and a mosque like this will be very familiar,Our television shows should have some Muslim characters that are unrelated to national security" President Obama

Today is our weekly bible study and we're in Proverbs 3:29 and will finish out the chapter today. We'll also be looking at some of the news of the day, including a new poll that says that 63% of Israelis think Obama is the worst President for Israel. This is no shock to anyone who sees how Obama has treated Israel. Benjamin Netanyahu should punch Obama in the nose, just sayin. :)
Intensive, hard core, often blood-curdling physical contact in sports such as basketball, hockey and football is a natural expectation in game plays. There is an expected risk of injury to the players in the normal hustle and bustle of the sport. But with the rise of flagrant fouls, penalties, scandals and serious injuries to other players resulting in fines and game suspensions, have the game plays crossed the line of 'good intense sports" to criminal assault?
Cincinatti Bengals' linebacker Vontaze Burfict makes a deliberate beeline for Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown's head, while Adam Pacman Jones responds to Assistant Coach Joey Porter's illegal presence in the sidelines with violence, in addition to previous infractions--such as deliberately removing the helmet of Oakland Raiders' Amari Cooper and banging Cooper's head on the helmet while on the field--clearly are not moves or actions necessary to play great football. Under any other circumstances, this would be a prosecutable offense, and the immediate throwing of the multiple flags on the field tells that they were flagrantly foul actions.. even by the NFL's guidleines. However, the NFL punished one of those actions while overlooking the other.
When does a player's actions on the field go beyond the scope of "great sports maneuvers" and turn into acts of assault? Are fines and game suspensions adequate punishments for repeat offenders? Tune in tonight at 10:30 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
