What does the FBI crime report mean for criminal justice reform?
from Investor's Business Daily
Contrary to Attorney General Sessions and others who suggest it shows the need for a 1980s-style crackdown on crime, the FBI's just-released report for 2016 — showing that violent crime has increased for the second consecutive year — does not actually demonstrate that we are experiencing a violent crime wave. Moreover, the administration's policy preferences threaten to undo reforms that are succeeding at the state and local levels.
