The conservative approach to criminal justice:
fighting crime, supporting victims, and protecting taxpayers.

North Carolina Criminal Justice in a Nutshell

| October 31, 2010

The John Locke Foundation’s Agenda 2010: Crime and Punishment does an exceptional job of reducing the complicated criminal justice problems in North Carolina to a few easy-to-understand bullet-points.  It also provides actual solutions to these problems — including reserving prison for violent and repeat offenders, adopting conditional post-conviction early release bonds, and expanding community courts for the mentally ill.


RIGHT ON CRIME is a national campaign to promote successful, conservative solutions on American criminal justice policy—reforming the system to ensure public safety, shrink government, and save taxpayers money. By sharing research and policy ideas and mobilizing strong conservative voices, we work to raise awareness of the growing support for effective reforms within the conservative movement. We are transforming the debate on criminal justice in America.
