Bernie Sanders said this week he supports giving prisoners the right to vote, and @AriBerman says this isn't that radical. The question isn't whether to give rights to criminals, he says, "it's about whether you lose fundamental citizenship just because you did one thing wrong."

Black activists have been fighting to reinstate voting rights for a while and I'm glad Bernie and other presidential hopefuls are now supportive of it.
 
DONT CAST PEARLS BEFORE SWINE?? OUR FREEDOMS, LIBERTIES AND THE RIGHT TO SELF GOVERN ARE A VERY COVETED THING AROUND THE WORLD. IN PUNISHING CRIMINALS, THEY HAVE FORFEITED THOSE RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS IF NOT FOR A TIME. THERE SHOULDN'T HAVE BEEN SO MANY TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE AT POLES
 
Yeah, right! Who's going to make sure they're not #coerced to #vote for a particular #Party while behind #bars? Behind the #scenes, who's going to prevent a #crooked #prison #official from saying, you're going to #vote for #JohnDoe or #JaneDoe or else No #TV or other #privileges?
 
I hope this becomes the default position among 2020 Dems
 
Nearly all European countries do not remove a person's right to vote while incarcerated.
 
more importantly it depends if you believe that the american justice system is reliable enough to be able to take that stance. prisoners in america are basically slaves because of the commercial prisons.
 
They don’t loose their citizenship but they do loose their right to vote. Once they are out they should have their voting rights restored.
 
Imprisonment means to be removed from society.
 
Vote AFTER you serve your time. No one should be able to vote from prison.
 
 
Yes! That was easy
 
Pakistan has banned vaccines because parents have promised to burn down the schools if one more child gets autism. 💥Sweden has banned vaccines. 💉48,000 people died from opioid overdose in 2018. ❤️As President I will ban mandatory vaccines.
 
 
So this is Bernie’s “free college” gimmick of 2020. It’s funny that you have wait for him to become president before he tries to accomplish anything 🤔. He’s looking for votes from any and every direction. #fiveminuteabs
 
If you’re barred from participating in society you should not be allowed to vote. But when you get out your full rights should be immediately restored. That’s fair.
