BAD JOKE: Juvenile Law Center Upset with SNL’s Michael Che about The Release of ‘Juvenile Lifer’

Kia Morgan-Smith, The Grio •

The Juvenile Law Center is upset that Saturday Night Live comedian Michael Che made a “crass” joke about a juvenile “lifer” who was recently released after serving decades in jail.

In December, Congress passed the FIRST STEP Act which shortens mandatory jail minimums for nonviolent drug offenses and tackled the federal three-strikes rule that historically has disproportionately impacted minorities.
