In the largest sense, I don’t know why criminal justice reform doesn’t happen — reform of our sentencing laws, bail bond system, parole board operations, use of solitary confinement. I could go on. There’s more injustice in our prisons and jails and legislators acknowledge that it exists. Our jails and prisons are expensive to operate and when reform bills are discussed in legislative committees and on federal and state legislative floors, everybody agrees systemic injustice is rampant.
