“No one – not even the government itself – has ever been able to specify with any certainty the precise number of federal crimes defined … in the 27,000 or so pages of the U.S. Code.” In the 1980s, lawyers at the Department of Justice estimated that the criminal code contained 3,000 crimes. Today, the Heritage Foundation estimates the federal laws currently enumerate nearly 5,000 crimes, a number that grows every year.
Holly Harris, Executive Director of the U.S. Justice Action Network, told Foreign Affairs Magazine in “The Prisoner Dilemma” March /April 2017 www.ForeignAffairs.com
In the South where there’s pain but no ouch!
“Wait a minute Massa’s coming Drop yaw head, watch yaw mouth!
Yea we know what he about control if well make it out
Racial slurs disrespectful and as big as a house!
Ands he sits on a horse in the rocking chair on his porch!
Watching is picking he corn Sin beaming it hurts!
I swear this shit is the worst but he won’t break me of counsel!
Got a bic from the new chick, plan to make me a torch!
I’ll be in Seg or a corpse probably ends up in court!
Just trying hitting him where it hurts holding meetings in church!
Smashes melons and cantaloupe we stopped feeding his animals!
Some say were hurting ourselves still it feels like the antidote!
Because were fired and sick of this slavery shit!
Now we pay for our medication: What how crazy is this?
So when I spit or throw piss and my defiance persists know I have a lot of Defense I’m not crazy just pissed.
