Vote Explanation for H.R. 6691, The Community Safety and Security Act of 2018
Rep. Beto O'Rourke

Several of my friends are working on the Beto O’Rourke campaign. In general, I like what I am reading here about the need for criminal justice reform. As a criminal justice practitioner and scholar of 30 years, I believe the system is broken and is badly in need of massive reformation. In fact, I left the system so that I can now freely write and advocate for reform. I am no longer influenced by the system I seek to change.

We need to address this issue in a very big way. No more band-aids and incremental tweaks. Bravo Beto!
