Some stats about Ashcrofts focus on prosecuting gun crimes. (lemme hear ya in da back now - federal gun laws are constitutionally prohibited! )
Course I wonder what would happen if they stopped prosecuting non violent offenders, or at least stopped imprisoning them, & gave lengthy sentences to the violent criminals? 800,000 pot smokers doing community service in exchange for 800,000 violent felons doing the whole sentence. Nah, they'd prosecute themselves out of a job.
