Firm, but Fair on Criminal Justice

I believe that the United States squanders far too many resources on over-incarceration and misguided crime policies, and that this money could be better spent providing education, training, and jobs to those who might otherwise get lost in the criminal justice system. I also advocate for police reform through increased transparency and accountability, as well as the demilitarization of America’s police forces.

I support the death penalty in capital cases. I also believe that felons who have completed their sentences and paid their penalties should have full restitution of their voting rights.
