why is that people that are already in jail are not being given the same treatment?
why are the inmates that were in jail prior to the new law not being affected by the law? How is this fair or equal to everyone? Why is the law not retroactive?
That's awesome- I didn't even think about that. My first thought would be that there have been so many cases, I've read that 77,000 people have been convicted of crack crimes in the last 18 years... so how could the country's judicial systems possibly go back and change ALL of those cases? Plus it might be hard to actually, physically change those cases in fear of messing up, perhaps? I personally believe the law should be retroactive, and I looked up this article for you to read... it says that changing past cases is still possible. Thanks for your amazing questions! Here's the article I was talking about: http://www.time.com/time/nation/article … 31,00.html
