DOJ pushes new effort to help ex-convicts and stop “enormous waste of human potential” abcn.ws/1NMqThH
I do not know how effective any solution will be, but yes, we do waste a lot of human potential in this country with our extremely high and insane incarceration rates.
Reclaiming our wayward citizens from the graveyard spiral of the penal system should be everybody’s concern.
There are lots of American companies that will hire ex convicts. The result are not always terribly happy.
Someone I know met with a convict for five years who was in for theft of some sorts. The convict studied religion, business, etc, and got out on parole last year, and is back in again for something else. What a shame. They were managing an asbestos removal business.
This is good news. Everyone deserves a chance at redemption.
