The Bloody Scandal of Criminal Justice Reform

Every day, I count my blessings that Jeff Sessions, the Senate’s leading battler against “criminal justice reform,” will be our next Attorney General.  But when I read today’s Washington Post story, I counted them with extra vigor.

Let’s say it out loud:  Criminal justice reform is a con job.  It’s a scandal and a bloody scandal to boot.  We know because every one of its central ideas  — enthusiasm for rehabilitation, avoidance of “punitive” attitudes, and the giving of second chances  — is practiced right here in the nation’s capital, and has been for years.  We don’t have to guess what’s going to happen.  We know.
