Chase Oliver on Crime



End mandatory minimum; end victimless crimes

It is long past time we address the problems with our criminal justice system. From Courts to police, to prisons, we need reforms in every area with one goal in mind, empower people, not the government. That means ending qualified immunity for federal law enforcement so those abused or harmed by law enforcement can have their day in court. It means ending mandatory minimum sentencing which ties the hands of judges and compels even some who are innocent to plead guilty to avoid the possibility of lengthy incarceration. It means ending the prosecution of victimless crimes and instead placing the focus of law enforcement on investigating and prosecuting crimes of violence, theft, fraud, or coercion.

End death penalty; it doesn't deter

REPLACING THE DEATH PENALTY WITH HUMANE ALTERNATIVES: I am an opponent of the death penalty. In too many instances the government has carried out an execution and it was later found out that the convicted were actually innocent of their crimes. It also does not deter crime, and the act itself is both cruel and does nothing to restore what was lost by the victims.

End qualified immunity at federal level, then states

Q: You ran on legalizing weed, criminal justice reform, tax reform, gun rights, abortion rights--which issues are you most hopeful the candidates take up in your absence?

A: Whomever represents Georgia in the United States ought to take up comprehensive immigration reform, because it's something that we have been discussing and debating since Ronald Reagan was president, and it hasn't gotten done. We really need a bipartisan group of senators to come together to actually make immigration less costly, more efficient, and more simple. And as far as justice reforms, we really need to see an end to qualified immunity for law enforcement at the federal level, so that states can follow suit.
