The Obama administration plans to ease mandatory prison sentences for convicted drug dealers. The new policy will benefit black drug offenders who are disproportionately affected by the mandatory sentences.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. made the announcement Monday as part of a comprehensive prison reform package to reduce prison sentences for elderly, nonviolent inmates whose drug offenses are not gang-related or part of a large-scale drug operation (such as Black Mafia Family).
Interestingly enough, President Obama was an avid drug user in his college days.
George Zimmerman was stopped by a Texas police officer for speeding and packing heat earlier this week, TMZ reports. Zimmerman was driving a grey pickup truck with a Florida license plate when he was pulled over for speeding in Forney, Texas on Sunday. The officer found a loaded handgun in the truck's glove compartment.
George Zimmerman is a free man for the first time in 15 months, but he and his family are still in hiding, according to Zimmerman's paranoid brother, Robert.
During an appearance on Fox News, Robert Zimmerman accused President Obama and US Attorney General Eric Holder of tapping his family's phones. “We do have concerns and always have of having our phones tapped, having our phones listened to by the administration or whomever, said Zimmerman.
Zimmerman made the statements after his brother was acquitted of murdering 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
