Cutting terms for some violent crimes key to easing U.S. mass incarceration: analysis

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/11/2015 - 12:02

A Guantanamo detainee's feet are shackled to the floor as he attends a "Life Skills" class at Guantanamo Bay U.S. Naval BaseBy Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - Mass incarceration, a problem that President Barack Obama and nearly all 2016 White House hopefuls agree must be tackled, can only be substantially reduced by easing punishments for some violent criminals, according to an analysis released on Tuesday. A range of ideas for shrinking the swelling U.S. prison population, now at 2.2 million, was advanced by the Urban Institute, a policy think tank, in the wake of Obama's historic prison visit last month and call for congressional sentencing reform legislation. The Urban Institute unveiled an online tool, called the Prison Population Forecaster, to measure how the changes would affect the prison population, which grew exponentially over the past four decades even as crime dropped to all-time recorded lows.
