Palin takes care of her base!

Does President Obama take care of his base? 
Is there room for improvement with people like Dirty Deters running around?

Below is a letter from the President

Dear Friend:

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me on criminal
justice. I appreciate hearing from you.

As we work to improve security on our streets and in our
neighborhoods, we will also lead the fight to build a more fair and
balanced criminal justice system. All Americans deserve to be
treated equitably as they enter this system, and have opportunities
after they pay their debt to society.

That is why I support the efforts of Federal, state, and local
law enforcement authorities to prohibit racial profiling--a practice
that has targeted too many Americans. I also support funding for
drug courts, which give first-time, non-violent offenders a chance
to serve their sentence, if appropriate, in drug rehabilitation
programs that have often been proven to work better than prison.
In addition, my Administration is committed to working with
Congress to correct the vast sentencing disparities faced by those
convicted of possession of crack cocaine as compared to powder
cocaine. If you break the law, consequences should follow, but our
Nation must ensure that sentencing fits the crime.

Just as we ensure fairness within the criminal justice
system, we must also create opportunities for those who want to
turn their lives around. My 2010 Budget commits $175 million to
programs proven to help formerly-incarcerated people reenter
society. These programs provide job training, work incentives,
transitional assistance, and substance abuse and mental health
treatment--all verified methods of reducing the likelihood that a
person will return to prison.

Thank you again for writing.
