The basis of our Justice system is the greatest laid down by man. But over time it has been corrupted. I believe that Justice must be swift and sure. Currently, many violent crimes are not dealt with harshly enough, while non-violent offenders face unreasonably long incarceration. I will support law enforcement in Constitutional means of putting criminals behind bars. However, I also believe in forgiveness and second chances. We need to develop a system that allows the offender to re-enter society and make a life for themselves. The way that felony convictions follow offenders causes high rates of recidivism. I stand with President Trump in his bipartisan efforts at criminal justice reform. Incarceration is one of the few questions to which the answer actually is “government”. The profit motive is a great thing, but it has no place in the serious task of depriving people of liberty.
