Bernie Sanders dangerous crime plan promises to set free half of America's prison population

That's right that guy down the street that was sent up for murder can be moving back into his old neighborhood. 
Or the other guy done the black that raped a 12 year old girl across the street can be hanging out at the local playground again.  This is how life under a Bernie Samders administration would be.  Does that sound appealing to anyone? 
Washington Post reports Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is proposing a criminal justice overhaul that aims to cut the nation’s prison population in half, end mandatory minimum sentencing, ban private prisons and legalize marijuana. He says the current system does not fairly treat people of color, addicts or the mentally ill.

“We have a system that imprisons and destroys the lives of millions of people,” Sanders told The Associated Press before the planned released of his proposal Sunday. “It’s racist in disproportionately affecting the African American and Latino communities, and it’s a system that needs fundamental change.”

This plan would endanger most the minority communities where these criminals came from.  How is this a good idea or make those communities safer?
