Biden: ‘I Got Stuck’ Writing 1994 Crime Bill Because I Was Judiciary Chair

Former Vice President Joe Biden said he "got stuck" writing the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act because he was chair of Judiciary Committee at the time.

"I got stuck with it because I was the chairman of the judiciary committee, writing most of the drug legislation that occurred in that period," he said during a panel interview on Friday. "The big mistake was that I was buying into the idea that crack-cocaine was different than powdered cocaine and having penalties should be eliminated."

The bill, which served as former President Bill Clinton's flagship drug reform, has come under fire from Black Lives Matter activists, who claim that it stoked racial tensions more than it solved crime problems. Biden's apology for the bill stands in contrast to comments from April 2016, when he defended it.

At the time, Biden said he was "not at all" ashamed of the bill, in an interview with CNBC.

Bidens going to have a harder time explaining this to blacks than Kamela Harris does regarding her tough position as a Prosecutor enforcing these laws.

BTW, President Trump just passed the First Step Act  Even Van Jones praised him for what he's done and neither Bush or Obama did.

Biden has far too much to answer for, to run without Barak Obama on the top of the ticket.  Black Lives Matter will lynch him for his writing the crime bill, which was signed into law by Bill Clinton.
