Jail report released

The Vera Institute of Justice issued its findings today from a study on Hamilton County's jail population. The study analyzed bookings in 2002 and 2006 and compared the two years.
County officials hope this information will help it figure out how to deal with the jail overcrowding problem.

Here is the power point presentation (given to the Criminal Justice Commission Tuesday)

Here is the full report.

I find it interesting that, if we were to take out the 'Victimless Crimes' identified in Peter McWilliams book "Ain't Nobody's Business", the total Jail population would be less than half what it is currently. Personal Choice "crime" only involves Consenting Adults, and it's persecution and prosecution is corrosive to both the Community and the Individual. Having actually LIVED in several foreign (mostly European) countries, I know that the non-persecution/prosecution of these "crimes" does NOT lead to any negative social consequences. In fact, the reverse is true. Non-persecution/prosecution makes for a happier and more orderly society. The recent Spitzer incident is a good case in point, as was Bill Clinton's famous "BJ in the Oval Office". Mayor Bloomburg (NYC) spoke the truth in his answer as to whether he had smoked marijuana: "Yes, and I seem to remember that I enjoyed it too."

Jayson R Jones is my hero for the day in Cincinnati. If only more people had such common sense this would be a much more prosperous liveable city. Shame on those of you who feel incarceration leads to correction.

You're not alone. Every two bit petty crook and drug dealer has JR Jones as their hero.
What planet are you on?

Didn't our great Sheriff tell us we would have a crime wave if his Jail Tax didn't pass? So much for that. There's more hot air coming out of Simon Leis's mouth than their is in his 20 foot blow-up doll.
