A Rule of Law Problem
At CPAC, Marc Levin was interviewed by James Poulos for PJTV. Levin and Poulos had a wide-ranging conversation in which Poulos expressed his view that the problems in the corrections system are largely a “rule of law” problem. Punishment should be swift, certain, and proportional to the level of the underlying offense, but when punishments become disproportionate (e.g., prison sentences for shoplifting or writing hot checks), and society ignores the disproportionate punishments, then the rule of law is also being disregarded.
