R Street Institute National Security Director Weighs In On Jail Reform

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has announced an approach that is reminiscent of a more traditional “law and order” effort on criminal justice.

Skeptics have said that method hasn’t been effective before, and that reforms are needed — rather than a return to the past.

One of those is Arthur Rizer. He is National Security and Justice Policy Director for the R Street Institute, a Libertarian group based in Washington, D.C.

We spoke with Rizer about changes he’d like to see, particularly in the areas of jail reform.
