Jesse Lava on mass incarceration: 'Fear drives an awful lot of our criminal justice

Jesse Lava, campaign director of Beyond Bars, and Preston Shipp, a former prosecutor and a professor at Lipscomb University, join John Fugelsang to discuss the need for mass incarceration reform in the United States. “The United States spends more than $200 billion a year locking people up, once you count cops and courts. If we took a fraction of that money and invested it in prevention programs, rehabilitation programs, community supervision, taxpayers would be a lot better off because they’re not paying to have people behind bars, and our streets would be safer,” Lava says. “Meanwhile, families wouldn’t be ripped apart by mass incarceration. Right now, 2.7 million children have a parent behind bars.”
