Issue Brief: Reforming Bail and Pretrial Detention

One of the cornerstone principles of the Western legal tradition is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. Over the last century, the imposition of bail requirements for accused offenders has flipped that presumption on its head, frequently making pre-trial freedom contingent on cash bail amounts well above the ability of an average citizen to pay. This issue brief explores how this came to be and aims to set out principles for states to use in reforming their bail guidelines. The goal is a return to a system that truly serves both justice and public safety.

Support Senate Bill 3 to Reform Ohio’s Sentencing Laws

On behalf of our activist community in Ohio, I urge you to support Senate Bill (SB) 3. This bill reforms Ohio’s sentencing laws for low-level, nonviolent offenses and focuses limited prison resources and severe, mandatory minimum sentences for high-level drug traffickers. FreedomWorks supports this approach. To this effect, our activists have sent 27,207 messages in support of Senate Bill 3 to Ohio state legislators over the past year and a half.

Americans Must Not Dehumanize Each Other As We Work for Justice

Protests in response to the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor are certainly understandable. The anger and frustration is real, but intimidation, looting, and violence are not acceptable nor constructive ways of expressing this. The scene of mobs surrounding politicians as they were leaving the White House after President Trump accepted the Republican nomination was disgusting. The scene should be prompting mob protesters, as well as Democrats who have encouraged these confrontations, to reconsider their tactics.

FCC Primed to Deliver Wins at August Open Meeting

The sky is blue, grass is green, it’s a day that ends in ‘y,’ and Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai is the subject of disingenuous attacks from the left. This time, they come regarding the substance of the FCC’s upcoming August open meeting tomorrow morning. The Commission is set to tackle a couple of issues: reduction of prison telephone rates and the liberation of more spectrum for developing 5G.

Faces of the American Freedom Initiative's National Pardon Project: Michael Montalvo

This project aims to help relieve injustices committed against Americans under the criminal justice system and the regulatory state.

For Liberty and Justice, Thank Rand Paul

In the past few weeks, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) has continued to prove that he is a leader when it matters. Throughout the coronavirus pandemic, bill after bill has been rushed through Congress, without ample input from members and with too many items in them to be good.

Coronavirus and Criminal Justice Reform: How and Why to Be Smart on Crime During a Public Health Crisis

For decades, our nation has been over-incarcerating individuals who run afoul of the law in a number of different ways. Oftentimes, the things that individuals run afoul of and are incarcerated for should either not be criminal laws at all, or should not be punished criminally to the degree that they are.
