YouTube for the Weekend

FAMM just posted a YouTube video of its president, Julie Stewart, testifying in front of the U.S. Sentencing Commission at its hearing on mandatory minimum sentences on May 27, 2010. 

Ten minutes may not sound like enough time to testify about 20 years of injustice, but that's what Julie got.  She used that time wisely and told the Commission about a horrendously unjust case, urged the Commission to lead the charge on sentencing reform, and called on the Commission to release a cutting-edge research report on mandatory minimums this fall.  Not bad for just 10 minutes!
