THE STORY:

There are many things very wrong with our prison system, but we can only tackle one problem at a time.
The US has the most number of people in prison than any other country in the world. This is true in both raw numbers and per capita. Considering China, this is saying something.
Ever since Raygun, Americans have become more punitive than ever. Many people are in jail due to mandatory sentencing, which insists on turning the judge into a robot who has no discretion.. St. Augustine said, "An unjust law is no law."
We can sharply reduce the number of people in prison simply by eliminating mandatory sentencing. This would have to be, I imagine, a call in and write in campaign to your Senators and Representatives
