Bill Clinton says tough '90s crime bill went too far

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 03:15

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton attends the Clinton Global Initiative's 2015 Winter Meeting in New YorkFormer President Bill Clinton acknowledged on Wednesday that an anti-crime crackdown he pushed in 1994 went too far, and said he now supports his wife Hillary's plans to reverse some of those justice policies. Bill Clinton signed into law a crime bill that imposed tougher sentences, put thousands of more police on the streets and helped fund the building of extra prisons. The anti-crime legislation was known for its federal "three strikes" provision that sent violent offenders to prison for life. We have too wide a net. We have too many people in prison. And we wound up spending - putting so many people in prison that there wasn’t enough money left to educate them, train them for new jobs and increase the chances when they came out that they could live productive lives," he said, according to a CNN transcript of the interview.

Black smoke was visible for miles as more than 300,000 gallons of crude oil burned. Heimdal is located along one of the main rail lines heading east out of the state's giant Bakken oil patch.
