States are taking the lead on justice reform

Whenever there is a violent conflict between police and citizens, the media goes into a frenzy looking for someone to blame. Some accuse the police of brutality, racism, and inhumanity. Others point out the hazards of a dangerous and thankless job, which requires dealing with some pretty unsavory people. The one thing everyone seems to agree on is that there is a problem that needs to be addressed, but while politicians and pundits waste breath with accusations and complaints, it’s all too rare that we have someone step up and offer genuine policy solutions.

Civil asset forfeiture: The reform issue that’s sweeping the nation

The issue of civil asset forfeiture is getting a lot of attention these days, and with good reason. This centuries-old law enforcement procedure is based on British laws that predate the American Revolution, and which do not reflect the principles embodied in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

Too Many Laws Means Too Many Criminals

BY Matt Kibbe and Timothy Head

There is no one in the United States over the age of 18 who cannot be indicted for some federal crime,” retired Louisiana State University law professor John Baker told the Wall Street Journal in July 2011. “That is not an exaggeration.”

FreedomWorks hosts bloggers for a unique, in-depth Justice Reform Briefing

What happens when you put 15 conservative and libertarian bloggers in a room at one of the most influential progressive organizations in the United States with their staff and journalists to discuss justice reform? As counterintuitive as it may seem given obvious ideological divides, the discussion was nothing short of profound and, perhaps to some in the room, even surprising as an unlikely alliance began to evolve.

Momentum is building in the Senate to get big government out of the courtroom

Over the last several years, many states, particularly where Republicans are in control, have looked for ways to get smarter on how they approach corrections. These states, such as Texas and Georgia, have seen tremendous success, and others are taking notice. Congress, however, has been slow to act on justice reform, even as the costs to taxpayers continues to grow due to the bad policies of the past.
