More Justice

2005-04-04

Last month I wrote the mayor of Denver challenging him to seek alternatives to incarceration for non-violent offenders such as prostitutes and drug users (most of whom probably need counseling and social assistance a lot more than they need time in the country jail). It turns out that the mayor had already formed an Alternatives to Sentencing Committee recently, but I had not heard about it. Let's hope the committee does good work.
