If we truly want to be a successful nation we can't incarcerate at the level we do. However, criminal justice reforms are just a piece of the solution. Better education, less poverty, better healthcare, less drug and alcohol use, stronger supports for working families st all levels, living wages with paid leave time, rehabilitation in prison vs just punishment. There is s lot of work to be done. That being said there is a level of violence and evil that cannot be cured but a good portion can be.
