The decline of mass incarceration is good for everyone
from The Washington Post
New data from the Bureau of Justice Statistics shows that the combined state and federal prison population decreased by 21,200 inmates in 2016. That brought the national imprisonment rate to 450 per 100,000 Americans, a level last seen in 1997. Cutting the imprisonment rate to a generational low obviously benefited people who were released from prison or who avoided going there in the first place due to recent reforms in arrest and sentencing policies.
