Crime Is Down, Lets Let Prisoners Out Of Jail!

Only a liberal mindset could come up with this. The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that violent crime in the U.S. was at a 32-year low. Thirty-two years ago, by the way, was when our government started keeping statistics on crime. So crime is the lowest it has ever been since we started keeping track.

Well here comes the Justice Policy Institute with this insane idea. The Justice Policy Institue is a liberal group dedicated to the idea of getting people out of prison believe it or not. They are working to end society’s reliance on incarceration and promoting effective and just solutions to social problems. So, in response to the new statistics showing reduced violent crime, the Justice Policy Institute thinks it would be a good idea to reduce the number of people we have in prisons around the country. Only a liberal would fail to connect the dots to see that one of the reasons violent crime has gone down is because the people who commit the violent crimes are behind bars! Simply amazing!
