Criminal Justice Reform

Clarissa's Blog

Wow, this is really good and sorely needed:

President Trump is throwing his support behind legislation that could shorten sentences for some drug offenders and help prisoners adjust to life after incarceration. . . It will also include measures to address sentencing disparities and inequities.

I don’t think marijuana should be legalized and I believe that Canada did a horrible thing by legalizing it. But I don’t for a second think that addicts should be put in jail. Large-scale dealers should be incarcerated, not folks who suffer from addiction.

About jamesbradfordpate

My name is James Pate. I study the History of Biblical Interpretation at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio, as part of its Ph.D. program. I have an M.A. in Hebrew Bible from Jewish Theological Seminary, an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School, and a B.A. from DePauw University. This blog is about my journey. I read books. I watch movies and TV shows. I go to church. I try to find meaning. And, when I can’t do that, I just talk about stuff that I find interesting.
