...former President Bill Clinton said yesterday during a speech celebrating (unsarcastically) the 20-year anniversary of his administration's COPS program. Clinton explained that the common approach to criminal justice reform at the time was mistaken. “We took a shotgun to it and just sent everybody to jail for too long,” he said. Clinton now figures that criminal justice reforms will play prominently in the 2016 presidential election.
