Right on Crime | February 15, 2011
In this discussion, Ed Morrisey asks several thoughtful questions about the Right On Crime campaign, and he touches on prison reform, overcriminalization, substance abuse, and much more. Perhaps most importantly, though, Morrisey asks whether Right On Crime is a campaign for federal reform or state/local reform. The answer is that Right On Crime is primarily an effort to encourage reforms at the state/local level. Right On Crime works for federal reform where it can, but criminal justice is generally an area that should be left to the states — so meaningful reform will have to come from state legislatures, state governors, and local officials.
