C. Aponte: How should we change our Criminal Justice system to reduce the number of inmates in prison?
Crime is just going up. Sending people to jail doesn’t seem to be “fixing” anyone. What can we do to make a system that won’t discriminate by your color or the size of your wallet? How can we treat people instead of isolating them from the general population and putting them into a cycle of criminal activity?

Analyze the reason most of them are there and make it legal. In the criminal justice system of today, the greatest contributor to crime is the law. Many , who are in prison, are there for what is essentially victimless crimes in that the only people that are hurt is themselves. (drugs mostly). Give them a support system and they won’t bother anybody. After all everybody is entitled to go to hell in their own way.Answer by bookstoredude

More job training and actually making the prisoners work instead of letting them sit in their cells all day and thus they become dependant on the state. Have them be productive and the recidicism rate will drop I think.
