Governor Mitch Daniels’s Case for Criminal Justice Reform

with one comment

Having more dangerous and repeat-offending criminals in prison is the best way to protect Hoosiers, but if our current laws and practices result in nondangerous offenders taking up space at high cost to taxpayers, there may be better ways to manage that.

Mitch Daniels, governor of Indiana and unofficial president of the Friedrich Hayek Fan Club. Part of my “overlapping consensus” series, collecting a variety of perspectives on why criminal justice reform is a smart idea.

  1. I have taught a women bible class for 14 yrs. at our local jail. About 6 mos. ago the men caused 2 fires on their side & each time the ladies were punished when they had nothing to do with it, the part I’m upset about is all Bibles,lessons & bible tracts are not permitted to be left in their cell. They used to read their Bibles & study together. The only Bible in their cell is one they sumgled in. I’m sure they will have that taken away too! I have seen quite a few lives changed for the better & without Gods word it would be impossible.Please let me know what you think about this matter.
