Go Easier

A coalition of more than 100 entertainers and civil rights leaders, led by rap mogul Russell Simmons, have signed a letter to Obama urging him to offer intervention and rehabilitation, instead of jail sentences, for nonviolent offenders. The group also asks the president to support a measure that would allow judges to waive mandatory minimum sentences.
