MY Hypothesis- MysteryLimbo

Harsh imprisonment specifically for “petty crimes” causes voter suppression and racial injustice. Harsh sentences for possession of marijuana or even small traces of crack or heroin on clothing could land someone a sentence without parole. Becoming a felon in the United States makes you a second class citizen, you lose your right to vote, and if you appeal enough in prison, one could lose their right to due process. Ironically the people that are affected by “petty crimes” are minority groups. According to the Federal Bureau Of Prisons (FBP), “ethnic” groups such as Hispanics aren’t considered a “race” so the statistic is fabricated by the government to make a larger issue much smaller.
