Another article blaming tough drug laws for rising prison populations today.
Just me or is the article bass ackwards? The article would have you think that
a rising prison population at a time that crime rates are falling is a
problem. DUH? shouldn't we expect crime to go down when more criminals are
put behind bars?
Anybody know if more people are really "behind bars"? Or are
parole/probation/ankle bracelet numbers being used to muddy up the waters?
