Funny — I don’t see Rand Paul’s name anywhere. Don’t you think that the Republican candidate for President deserves some credit for the effort and attention he has brought to this issue? For a Democrat to push sentencing reform is essentially singing to the choir. For a Republican to take that approach, and to potentially alienate some of his base, takes some real guts.
I do think this is a step in the right direction. Now do something to prevent them from committing those crimes in the first place and we’ll be getting somewhere.
