    Violent criminals must be dealt with accordingly. These criminals generally do no reform and recidivism rate is very high.

    I support laws that don't enforce the Prison Industry Complex system that is designed to profit from cultural specific disparities in punishments. The system needs reconstruction in a major way that it is equal to all people. Pressure from the communities will create change. We have power to stop violations. This will not eliminate punishment or sentencing, but, it will oppose the death penalty.

    I am against the death penalty. I believe life starts at conception and must be respected. Thus, I am “pro-life.” In the same regard, I cannot then be for the death penalty. And, to the extent that America leads the world in homicides, I believe the death penalty is not a deterrent. According to Amnesty International, as of July 2015, 101 countries have abolished the death penalty for all crimes.
