Should the US penal system be overhauled? It seems like too many people are in prison and some of the sentences are unnecessarily long.

I definitely think that the penal system needs to be overhauled. We must focus on rehabilitation instead of punishment and ensure that people are only incarcerated if they pose a genuine threat to society.

That sounds great but it's a much bigger process than you realize. You should see the multiple stacks of papers on my desk for my boss's current caseload, and actually changing a policy, that would be a very labor-intensive process. I'm not saying it shouldn't be done. Just that you probably don't know how big of a job it would be

For sure. There are hardened criminals out here running around free while other people are left rotting in jail years after they have changed their ways. Hard to find justice nowadays, I tell ya

I think prison exists for a very good reason, because we can't just allow people to run around all willy-nilly breaking laws. The vast majority of people who are locked up are there because they belong there. Hopefully they will be able to turn their lives around when they are released. But they have to know that their current choices have led them somewhere they don't want to end up.
