Criminal Justice Reform & the Republican Presidential Candidates

Here’s a scary thought — one of these Republicans might be the next president. Sample this excerpt from an interesting, longer article.


More than 40 years after Republican President Richard M. Nixon coined the phrase “war on drugs,” many GOP presidential candidates are calling for an end to one of its central tenets — by agreeing with Democrats to treat low-level drug offenders rather than incarcerate them.

The Republicans are selective, however, about who is deserving of their compassion.

Several GOP presidential contenders have advocated treating the nation’s growing heroin epidemic as a health crisis, not a criminal one. But, most stop short of advocating the same approach to other drug laws, notably those involving marijuana and crack cocaine, which disproportionately affect African Americans.

The election is only 11 months away. Keep paying attention.
