The 10-member Colson Task Force on Federal Corrections is composed of Republican and Democrat federal and state congressional leaders, a federal judge, a U.S. attorney, a state warden, a professor, and representatives from local agencies. The members crossed political lines to issue a consensus-based report calling for the federal Bureau of Prisons to reduce its population by 60,000 inmates and reserve mandatory minimums for violent offenders only, and it urged Congress to create a path for prisoners who have served more than 15 years to apply for shorter sentences by asking their judges to give their cases a second look. How would you defend these reforms to persons who advocate for tough-on-crime approaches?
