The Bigger Problem with Meek Mill’s Sentence

It’s fair to say the penal and justice system needs major changes. I hear folks say Free Meek Mill. I understand if your actions constantly are wrong there are consequences. However, the bigger issue is the inequality of sentences. When rapist get probation and 6 month sentences and probation violators can get years for non-violent crimes (driving dirt bike recklessly), there needs to be changes. This is just one example. Walk into your nearest jail and hear the sentences then you will recognize the problem.
