Joel Caston wakes up in his corner cell before dawn as he has for the last 26 years while incarcerated. The light from the thin rectangular window offers little illumination as he prepares for the day.
Joel Caston, a known drug dealer and murderer was elected to serve on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission in DC. Caston received 35-years-to life for committing murder at the age of 18.
He’s currently up for parole in December.
According to Conservative Brief reports:
“Voters in Washington, D.C., chose a convicted murderer who is still serving time in prison to serve on the Advisory Neighborhood Commission.
Joel Caston, who was elected commissioner for 7F07 in Ward 7, told the Washington Informer that things were “going well” and he has a new appreciation for elected officials.
“Working a few weeks as a commissioner makes me realize the hard work elected officials perform. It makes me respect public officials even more. As an elected official, you are navigating moving pieces. Plus, you are constantly meeting with your constituents and colleagues,” he said.
Caston has been behind bars since 1994 for first-degree murder; he received a 35-years-to-life sentence in 1996, but he’s up for parole in December.”
Running for office was a natural next step, says Caston. And he adds that even though he was disqualified after his first attempt late last year, he was recently reminded of the symbolic value of even trying: An older person who had just arrived at the jail told Caston he had heard about his write-in campaign.
That is insane! America has really changed. From the President himself who has bad dementia who orders selfish mandates that exclude illegal aliens but include them on benefits. Wow.
Anyway, welcome to Biden’s America.
