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

Rep. Ray Allen talks ROC with YNN

| January 2, 2014

Criminal justice reform has been a big topic for political leaders lately.

Earlier this year, the justice department announced it would stop pursuing mandatory minimum sentences for certain nonviolent drug offenders. And here in Texas, experts with the Right on Crime initiative have been making their case for less spending on prisons and more treatment for drug addiction.

We spoke to former State Representative Ray Allen, who spearheaded some of the same ideas back in 2003 in an effort to cut costs.
