Clinton’s 1994 Crime Bill Mass Incarcerated Minorities Fueled Breakdown of Black Families

Do Black Lives Matter to the Clintons?

Hillary is out on the trail for her 2016 campaign swearing to help minority families, bring jobs to the inner cities and to preaches “Equality” for all, to put an end to “Police Racism” and violence.

Yet in 1994 it was the Clinton’s who passed the single most detrimental Bill that fueled the mass incarceration of tens of thousands of Black men that chain reacted the break down and destruction of the Black Family.  Clinton’s bill led to tens of thousands of minority men to be locked up and rights stripped for minor offences such as having small amounts of Marijuana. Once behind bars, inmates were not allowed  forms of high education or training, once out of prison the bill made it almost impossible for them to get jobs under disclosure acts. Hillary Clinton was very much involved in the architecture of this Bill and called minorities “Super Predators” on more than one occasion, since has never apologized and to this day defends this Bill.

The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994, H.R. 3355, Pub.L. 103–322 is an Act of Congress dealing with crime and law enforcement; it became law in 1994. It is the largest crime bill in the history of the United States and consisted of 356 pages that provided for 100,000 new police officers, $9.7 billion in funding for prisons and $6.1 billion in funding for prevention programs, which were designed with significant input from experienced police officers. Sponsored by Representative Jack Brooks of Texas, the bill was originally written by Senator Joe Biden of Delaware and then was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Bill Clinton.

Following the 101 California Street shooting, the 1993 Waco Siege, and other high-profile instances of violent crime, the Act expanded federal law in several ways. One of the most noted sections was the Federal Assault Weapons Ban. Other parts of the Act provided for a greatly expanded federal death penalty, new classes of individuals banned from possessing firearms, and a variety of new crimes defined in statutes relating to immigration law, hate crimes, sex crimes, and gang-related crime. The bill also required states to establish registries for sexual offenders by September 1997.

2nd Amendment Rights 

Title XI-Firearms, Subtitle A-Assault Weapons, formally known as the Public Safety and Recreational Firearms Use Protection Act but commonly known as the Federal Assault Weapons Ban or the Semi-Automatic Firearms Ban, barred the manufacture of 19 specific semi-automatic firearms, classified as “assault weapons”, as well as any semi-automatic rifle, pistol, or shotgun capable of accepting a detachable magazine that has two or more features considered characteristic of such weapons. The list of such features included telescoping or folding stocks, pistol grips, flash suppressors, grenade launchers, and bayonet lugs.

This law also banned possession of newly manufactured magazines holding more than ten rounds of ammunition.

The ban took effect September 13, 1994 and expired on September 13, 2004 by a sunset provision. Since the expiration date, there is no federal ban on the subject firearms or magazines capable of holding more than ten rounds of ammunition.

Death Penalty Strengthened

Title VI, the Federal Death Penalty Act, created 60 new death penalty offenses under 41 federal capital statutes, for crimes related to acts of terrorism, murder of a federal law enforcement officer, civil rights-related murders, drive-by shootings resulting in death, the use of weapons of mass destruction resulting in death, and carjackings resulting in death.

The 1995 Oklahoma City bombing occurred a few months after this law came into effect, and the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 was passed in response, which further increased the federal death penalty. In 2001, Timothy McVeigh was executed for the murder of eight federal law enforcement agents under that title.

Higher Learning in Prisons Denied

One of the more controversial provisions of the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act overturned a section of the Higher Education Act of 1965 permitting prison inmates to receive a Pell Grant for higher education while they were incarcerated. The amendment is as follows:

(a) IN GENERAL- Section 401(b)(8) of the Higher Education Act of 1965 (20 U.S.C. 1070a(b)(8)) is amended to read as follows:(8) No basic grant shall be awarded under this subpart to any individual who is incarcerated in any Federal or State penal institution.

The VCCLEA effectively eliminated the ability of lower-income prison inmates to receive college educations during their term of imprisonment, thus ensuring the education level of most inmates remains unimproved over the period of their incarceration.

Regulations Designed to Crush Minorities & Strip Rights

The Act authorized the initiation of “boot camps” for delinquent minors and allocated a substantial amount of money to build new prisons.

Fifty new federal offenses were added, including provisions making membership in gangs a crime. Some argued that these provisions violated the guarantee of freedom of association in the Bill of Rights. The Act did incorporate elements of H.R. 50 “Federal Bureau of Investigation First Amendment Protection Act of 1993” (into §2339A (c)) to prohibit investigations based purely on protected First Amendment activity, but this was effectively removed in the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996.

The Act also generally prohibits individuals who have been convicted of a felony involving breach of trust from working in the business of insurance, unless they have received written consent from state regulators. The Act also made drug testing mandatory for those serving on federal supervised release.

The Act prohibits “any person acting on behalf of a governmental authority, to engage in a pattern or practice… that deprives persons of rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.” (Title XXI, Subtitle D.) Subtitle D further requires the United States Department of Justice to issue an annual report on “the use of excessive force by law enforcement officers.” Such reports have not been issued, however. The Act included a three-strikes provision addressing repeat offenders.

Architectures of Social Destruction

This bill was handcrafted to destroy Black and Hispanic Families denying small offence offenders any chance of success which intern left them the only option of repeating offences after release from prison. Hillary Clinton was very much involved in crafting and promoting this bill and even called Blacks & Minority men “Super Predators” on more than one occasion.
