Recapping the big crack news
Anyone not keeping up with sentencing news late on Friday nights should be sure to start the new week noting the big crack sentencing developments coming from the US Sentencing Commission. Though this story will unfold in many dimensions in the weeks and months to come, I spent the weekend clacking ought a few posts on the USSC's new crack work:
- USSC provides (yummy?) half-a-loaf crack amendment
- Why the USSC's new crack work is soooooo significant
- How will the new USSC crack work impact present (and past) cases?
- Previewing the (quite unpredictable) new federal politics of crack sentencing

Being raised in a neighborhood where I have seen a cycle of drug dealing, I feel the law should be passed because just sending them to jail is nt the only solution to a bigger and ongoing problem. I feel locking them up is only a cover up to the real problem. They are offered no assistance to see what the root of the problem is and resolve it. A lot of them do it because it's all they know, have seen and been taught. On the other hand, I feel drugs is drugs, Powder cocaine or crack cocaine they're both drugs, just used differently and have slightly different affects.
