This is just a small part of the nation’s hypocrisy when it comes to criminal justice. The Iran-Contra scandal was the peremptory actions that led to the flooding of illegal drugs into the streets and neighborhoods of South Central Los Angeles. Now, thousands, if not millions of black men and women have been killed, incarcerated or adversely affected by the actions of our governmental agencies. The hypocritical thing is that one of the individuals that played a part in these scandalous activities has been named to assist in this administrations Venezula’s policy. This man was convicted for his crimes under Ronald Reagan’s administration (who should have been arrested as well, and was subsequently pardoned by George W Bush (who also should have been arrested). None of the people affected by the drugs was pardoned, and there is no doubt that this man should have been allowed to go on about his life without the disenfranchising felon tag being plastered on him. Herein lies just one of the problems with our nation.
