President Trump, do you support rehabilitation or incarceration for nonviolent drug offenders?

Back in 1999, Aaron Glasscock was just 22-years-old and two months shy of graduating from college when he was sentenced to 30 years in federal prison for a nonviolent drug offense: conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute cocaine. Nearly 20 years later, Glasscock is out of prison, as his sentence was commuted by President Barack Obama.

My love/hate relationship with Barack Obama

I campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. I will never forget the tears that streamed down my face when, after a long day of "Get Out The Vote" door-knocking in Chicagoland’s American Muslim neighborhoods, I watched him walk out on stage in Grant Park on the television screen in my family’s living room. A person with a name like mine was elected President of the United States.
