"Senator Rand Paul continues making the conservative case for criminal justice reform"

Doug Berman has this post at Sentencing Law & Policy, excerpting a piece from The Huffington Post. In part:

The likely 2016 presidential contender, who previously compared federal drug laws to the racist policies of the Jim Crow era, also criticized the GOP for failing to live up to its platform emphasis on family values. “If we’re the party of family values, in 1980 there were 200,000 kids with a dad in prison. There’s now two million,” Paul said, calling on Judeo-Christian conservatives to set policies by the principle of redemption.
