The conservative approach to criminal justice:

Vikrant P. Reddy on NPR’s ‘Tell Me More with Michel Martin’

“It’s obvious that if you lock more people up you’re going to have less crime, just because you’ve incapacitated people. But of course, the problem is that at a certain point you’re going to get diminishing returns. You can just start locking up far too many people and you’d find that those dollars could be more wisely spent elsewhere – maybe in programs that would reduce recidivism rates.”
