There is a very good discussion of the issues and problems in this video about the prison problem. My goal here is to show that Hillary & Bill can't make good decisions by going over one issue at a time. Lets look at the racist decision that was made with the crime bill by Bill & Hillary in 1994 (my words "racist decision" is based on the interview and discussion in the video below). Hillary & Bill are clearly biased in ways that only comes out when they make policy and not so much when it comes to electioneering. Clearly they know how to campaign well. I'm guessing Bill is the brains here.

The problem with this argument is that many of the crime policies the Clintons supported in the 1990s were probably wrong even back then.
Here is Hillary supporting the awful decision of 1994;
Video: Mass Incarceration: Can Hillary Clinton Undo Bill's Legacy On Crime?
Here is Bill apologizing after the fact (he does that alot. Passes bills to help his rich buddies - in this case Private Prison campaign donors - then he apologizes for it. They are smart enough to cut thier ties before an election. Maybe they will do nothing on prisons maybe they will do something... but one thing is for sure, if they keep thier current pattern alot of rich people are going to get richer and we will hear alot more apologies after the fact... maybe when it's time for their daughter to run for something.)
Bill Clinton says he made mass incarceration issue worse -Bill Clinton said Wednesday that the crime bill he signed into law as President in 1994 worsened the nation's criminal justice system by increasing prison sentences. "I signed a bill that made the problem worse," Clinton told an audience at the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's annual meeting in Philadelphia. "And I want to admit it."
(says nothing about his private prison friends who make a killing off this bill)
Note: The cause for high crime rate amoungst poor humans is poverty. This is something that has been known throughout recorded history. Black people are no different when from other people when it comes to poverty & high crime. Remember the financial crisis of 2008 and how everyone flipped out at the crash of the economy followed by the resurgence of hate groups with Obama's election? Poverty, or the prospect of poverty, puts a person in a basic survival instinct where do they things that resemble madness. Why are things not that bad right now? Because the economy isn't close to as bad as the traitor republicans are saying.
