Sanders: Boston Marathon Bomber Should Be Able To Vote From Prison

13

Sen. Bernie Sanders argued Monday that all prisoners, including domestic terrorists such as the Boston Marathon bomber, should have the right to vote while they are incarcerated.

“If somebody commits a serious crime, assault, murder, they’re going to be punished,” Sanders 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,” he continued. “Yes, even for terrible people, because once you start chipping away … you’re running down a slippery slope. … I do believe that even if they are in jail, they’re paying their price to society, but that should not take away their inherent American right to participate in our democracy.”

  1. What about the rights of the people that he murdered? Why is one
    so concerned about preserving the rights of someone who tried to
    destroy the boundaries of society.

  2. Yeh! Bernie as long as they vote for you. Politicians have large pockets and nothing is for free, what will he get for this kindness????

  3. May I suggest that we count the victims as having voted Republican. So what if their drad sure they lose their voting rights Just because of such a technicality

  4. Bed gas out. What frocks you dons you.

    Enemy of America grunt rack and wheel. He is pulling the drive out of jive.

  5. The liberal cancer stops at nothing.

    The only way it will go away if it will be stopped by a hefty dosage of radiation of logic and G-dly morales

  6. Why should people who violate a country’s laws get to voice their opinion on how to run the country?

    Then again, common sense also would tell you not to praise a communist mass murderer dictator and assume that his victim’s silence in the face of death means that they approve of him…

    If he’s so worried about democracy why did he praise communist Russia and Cuba?

    He just wants more votes from whatever degenerate pool he can draw from
