Why wait for Detroit.

It was widely expected that the democratic presidential nomination rival, Joe Biden, and Sen. Cory confuse Booker in the next week, the second round of the presidential primary debate in Detroit about the problems of race and law enforcement, when the two candidates stand side by side in the middle of the stage

But the first blows are thrown.


Only a few hours after the former Vice President on Tuesday unveiled tomorrow, a comprehensive plan to reduce the country’s prison population, the reform of the nation’s criminal justice system and eliminate racial and income disparities in sentencing, Booker took aim.

“It is not enough to tell us what you do for our communities, to show us what you have done for the last 40 years. You have created this system. We disassemble it,” tweeted the senator from New Jersey, which is black.

Booker the great participation in the drafting of the 1994 crime bill, the criminal justice Biden to the right of reform is a sensitive issue for the current frontrunner in the race for the democratic presidential nomination.

As a senator from Delaware, Biden helped craft was signed in 1994 bill into law by President Bill Clinton. Biden has already highlighted a long time, its role in the aid of writing, the law, which at the time was the largest anti-crime bill in the history of the nation. The measure provided for thousands of new police officers, to Finance millions of dollars, prevention, and billions of dollars to build new prisons.

But the law has long been criticized by the Democrats, blame the measure for the increase in arrests, especially among the minorities, on the basis of a mandatory life sentence policy for repeat offenders.


Biden’s new criminal justice plan – in fact, would reverse the stricter sets of conditions for crack versus powder cocaine, which were implemented 1994 legal.

Last month on the election campaign, Biden stressed that “only a determination to do the I had with the related rates, in contrast. And that was a thing, called the “three strikes and you’re out”, I thought that was a mistake. But it had a lot of good things in the bill.”

But before the jabs of the many competitors about the law, Biden has a lot of other aspects of the measure defended.

Biden, who remains the frontrunner in the democratic nomination race, thanks to his strong support of black voters, credited to prohibition the law of the gun-control provisions, including the assault weapons – which he said helped him “against the NRA.”


At the end of may, Booker in the law, saying it was “terrible hit.”

And in an interview with the Huffington Post, he also stressed that “we should all agree with the power of conviction, The bill was a mistake…Good people logged in, the bill. People make mistakes. But we will keep you, the. The crime bill was shameful, what it did to the black and brown communities, such as mine.”

The Booker campaign on Tuesday told Fox News that “the tweet stands for itself”, and described it as “Biden pretty direct response,” the new criminal justice proposal.

But to say a couple of hours later, to be released hammer home the point, the candidate with a Declaration: “had Biden for more than 40 years to get this right. The proud architect of a failed system is not the right person to fix it.”

Booker argues that Biden “plan falls short of the transformative change to our broken criminal justice system to the needs of” not by a legalization of marijuana, overhaul of police practices, forcibly about the presdiential mild power, or reinvestment in communities affected by mass incarceration.

The former Vice-President of the campaign highlighted that the new proposal, officially titled the “Biden Plan for strengthening America’s commitment to justice,” would prioritize reform of the juvenile justice system — with a $1 billion per year ” to ensure we can give even more children a second chance to live up to your potential.”

Senior-Biden campaign officials told Fox News on Tuesday that the sweeping plan would be paid for the use of the cost savings from the reduction in the mass arrests.

Biden is expected to spotlight his plan this week, while addressing, he speaks to an NAACP presidential candidate forum Wednesday in Detroit, as well as the next day in Indianapolis, when the National Urban League annual conference. Booker will also speak at both events.

Fox News handle the Biden campaign for each answer to Booker’s tweet, but they refused to respond to Booker’ jab s.

This is not the first time the two candidates verbal blows thrown at each other.

Last month, Booker, Biden called to apologize after controversial comments from the former Vice-President of spotlighting his ability to find common ground in the Senate, he objected to four decades ago with the racial segregation that senators, with whom vehemently.

Biden said later, Booker owed him an apology.


Sr., Kamala Harris of California, on the other hand, the former Vice-President in the coming week is the showdown. It is also Biden criticized the 1994 crime bill, and sparred dramatically with him in the last month, the debate about his position on busing.


Booker, trailing in the polls, could confront the stage to similarly, the former Vice President in Detroit.

A week before the debates, though, Detroit mayor Mike Duggan Biden approved.

The mayor called Biden a “great friend of Detroit.”
