National Review: Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) said Monday that all felons, including terrorists and rapists, should be able to vote while serving out their prison sentences.
Asked during a CNN town hall in New Hampshire whether he believed people like the Boston marathon bomber should be disenfranchised, Sanders said no, and suggested that all restrictions on voting rights erode American democracy.
“If somebody commits a serious crime, sexual assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” he said. “They may be in jail for 10 years, 20 years, 50 years, their whole lives. That’s what happens when you commit a serious crime. But I think the right to vote is inherent to our democracy. Yes, even for terrible people. more …
Opinion: Bernie’s causes: coddle criminals – murder infants – sanction Israel – destroy US economy. Kinda has a ring for the whole Democrat party, don’t ya think?
Martin Richards was one of 3 deaths and 264 horrible injuries that day. He was 8 years old when he died from one of the two bombs detonated near the finish line of the Boston Marathon April 15, 2013.
This guy, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was one of the killers who purposely placed the bomb next to the boy to cause maximum pain to the family and us.
Bernie Sanders and Kamala Harris say he should have the right to vote. Genesis 9:6; Exodus 21:12; Acts 25:10-11 and Romans 13:1-5 say he forfeited the right to live.
