After 20 years as a probation officer, one fact is clear, I would have no job if poor people had the same access to "justice" as rich people.

No leniency for 'non-violent' crimes - only for victimless crimes. White collar fraud is not victimless - with or without intent to harm.

The bill should be renamed: Affluenza Amnesty for Entitlement Mentality, White Collar Criminals. These inclusions are an admission of guilt for the Koch's, Manhattan Institute & Heritage Foundation. If they have not committed any crimes than, they should have nothing to worry about. I believe it was that exact rationale that explained the necessity of putting cameras everywhere in public spaces. A sincere thank you to the Koch's, Manhattan Institute and Heritage Foundation for giving my republican partner one more reason to vote DEMOCRAT in 2016. The fact that they have gone through the trouble of being involved in this bill at all, is like an upfront admission of guilt. Suckers!

any legislation that the Koch brothers endorse will not have a positive outcome for average working Americans. I oppose this and any legislation that doesn't improve the life, liberty or freedom and pursuit of happiness for Americans, not corporate entities and others like the Koch brothers who only seek to increase their own wealth.

Do NOT allow this. People intentionally structure involvement so that they are not directly culpable, even when they consciously know, and my be the author of the activities through another vehicle. Do not allow this legal protection for that type of behavior.

Most perps do not realize they are committing crimes and probably lie to law enforcement when asked if they knew if they were committing a crime. Law enforcement MUST enforce the law.

The section in question (see below) is a clear attempt to force the federal government to apply mens rea to white collar criminal proceedings. Who in their right mind would say they knew what they were doing was illegal, but they did it anyway? § 11. Default state of mind proof requirement in Federal criminal cases ?If no state of mind is required by law for a Federal criminal offense? ?(1) the state of mind the Government must prove is knowing; and ?(2) if the offense consists of conduct that a reasonable person in the same or similar circumstances would not know, or would not have reason to believe, was unlawful, the Government must prove that the defendant knew, or had reason to believe, the conduct was unlawful.

Please stop H.R. 4002, a fake criminal justice reform bill that is really an attempt to protect corporate criminals.
