From IJReview: Following a report that the Justice Department planned to release 6,600 federal prisoners between Oct. 30 and Nov. 2, New York City Police Commissioner Bill Bratton had a simple warning for all concerned:
“We need to separate bad people from good people.”
“Judges need to – and district attorneys, and we the police, and the public – need to take into account that some people, I’m sorry, they’re criminals,” Some people are bad people, and we need to separate the bad people from the good people.”
Tens of thousands of convicted felons are expected to be released under Amendment 782, dubbed “Drugs Minus Two,” which lowers guideline sentencing ranges for most drug trafficking offenses.
The U.S. Sentencing Commission said a total of 16,500 federal prisoners will be released during the program’s first year, with as many as 40,000 more being released over the next several years.
