Adam Gelb on prison reform in Texas

Why in a region where “law and order” has been a driving political force for so long, has the idea of keeping fewer convicts in prison taken root? What are the prospects for the Texas experiment to become a national movement? Need to Know spoke with Adam Gelb, a former journalist, congressional staffer, and state government official, and one of the nation’s foremost authorities on correction policies; he’s now with the Pew Center on the States.

    Gee, what a shock, embrace the Liberal ideas on prison reform and things get better! Wow, amazing that it only took the Republicans 30 years to catch up to the Liberals.
