Sentencing Reform: Part 1– The Power of Fear
The United States imprisons more people than any other nation, including China and Russia. Over 2.3 million adults are currently in American prisons and jails. Locking up more and more people for longer and longer doesn’t make us safer, yet still the incarceration rate has shot up 500% over the past four decades.
We explore the scope and source of mass incarceration in, Sentencing Reform: Part I – The Power of Fear. It's the first in a forthcoming series that will highlight the symptoms and ultimate solutions to the ongoing mass incarceration epidemic.
