“The vast majority of incarcerated individuals will be released at some point, and often struggle to become self-sufficient once they exit the correctional system...We have a great interest in helping them turn their lives around, get a second chance, and make our community safe.”so who said that? Trumpieboy.
just opening his big mouth, of course.
Or maybe not: He tends to get things done, and the article points out programs in places like Texas that have alternative sentencing and also have cut the rate of going back to prison, and that some people who did this were at the meeting and there are indeed things that could be done and this is discussed, albeit not in detail.
Of course, most prisons are state run, not federal, but it could pressure states to do the same.
I know nothing about prison and prison reform, but this was an overlooked item in the news.
