I cannot highlight or edit this article, sent to me by my friend, Rev. Jeff Grant. But if you read it you will see that more than 1,000 people interviewed understand that the justice system is in urgent need of reform, they favor rehabilitation and less incarceration, treatment instead of prison for addicts and the mentally ill. And they see that long prison sentences often do more harm than good. All the stuff we have been urging.
Moreover, they said they would support politicians who propose these reforms! So why do not politicians rush to implement them? Because those who benefit from the current train wreck of a criminal justice system – police unions prison guard unions, private prisons, and others – donate money to them, lobby, etc.!
