George Cushingberry's 3 Point Solution to Crime with Love in the City of Detroit and the State of Michigan

Dear Potential Voters and Supporters,

This is what I would like to see happen for the Citizens of the State of Michigan, especially the ones located in the 2nd District of the City of Detroit.  We need to have our Detroit Citizens employed fixing the potholes in streets instead of being in Jail or, having a new one built for them. In order to accomplish this we need to employ people at all levels of the project.  We scream about giving people second chances, now it is time to step up to the plate and get the job done.

1.      There needs to be a change in the expungement law to allow a judge after 30 years to expunge any number of crimes in the interest of justice and economics. Possession of heroin and cocaine were felonies as well as marijuana possession of more than 100 plants or more. We have more guns and badges in Detroit now just not Detroit cops. They are now deputized officers employed with Wayne St. U, University of Detroit, and Detroit Public Schools. When you add in the rent a cops, parking officers, State Police, Federal Homeland Security it is too bad they can’t answer runs to assist Detroit like in years past.

2.      Once people serve their time we should try to give them every opportunity especially when they are productive citizens.  Citizens who are currently serving time (including probation) would get their sentences commuted and expunged for any Federal crime involving marijuana possession. This language would include an immediate cease and desist order to stop all asset forfeiture where property is taken and sold without the benefit of a trial. This would work well in Michigan for citizens Ryan Bashore, Dennis Forseberg, and 5 others representing the Lansing 7, caregivers who were given 3 year jail terms and, sent to Morgantown West Virginia for having more than 100 marijuana plants on their property.  Attorney General Eric Holder must reissue a stronger memo to all Federal Prosecutors in the United States of America to cease and desist all asset forfeiture, arrests, and prosecution of  citizens who possesses, consume, and manufacture Cannabis. President Obama must take action to remove Marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act because of the negative economic impact on local, State, and Federal budgets.

3.     I will actively pursue US Congress members Peters, Rogers, Dingell, Conyers, Levin, and Stabenow to introduce the bill and, get it to the President for his signature. The language will include a matrix which matches the crimes to the employment and prohibit employers from asking have you ever been convicted. (A child abuser or pedophile shouldn’t be a teacher) A model city ordinance and state law after Connecticut’s law is appropriate. Finally with passage of the Farm Bill to include the production of Industrial Hemp, the partnership between Michigan State University’s agriculture extension programs and the City of Detroit will create jobs and create prosperity here. The neighborhoods, especially the ones in District 2, will be green and looking right again. (no pun intended)

If I am elected to represent the Second District in the City of Detroit, I will assure you the citizen that I will work for the betterment of the City to help silence the violence. If you would like to help me in this effort then please remember to mark my name on your ballot. If you would like to donate please click the donation link here or, on my site
