1/10 Today I introduced the Wisconsin Corrections Reform and Reinvestment Initiative. The reforms address non-criminal revocations; Wisconsin’s earned release system; and changes to community supervision.
2/10 #CriminalJusticeReform has become a national, #bipartisan issue with ~45 states who have already made steps for reforming the system.
3/10 In WI, we face the reality of either building a new prison to house the growing population or reform the system. I make the case for reform.

We Need Criminal and Crazy Control, Not Gun Control! When criminals and psychos aren’t locked up, then everyone ends up in jail. 🚨Frontpage Mag #WakeUpAmerica #2A #JusticeReform…
A society with mass murder is experiencing a moral problem.

America’s moral problem is more complex than that of Nazi Germany or its Communist counterparts. We don’t have a government that is actively killing people. Instead we have a government that has made it easy for...
... killers to operate by dismantling the criminal justice and immigration systems, making it very difficult to stop the three primary categories of killers, gang members, terrorists and the insane.

I want to put this in perspective for my locals:

Imagine you're attending a convention. You're in the reg line to buy a ticket, but your card is declined. Turns out, you accidentally overdrew your account because you weren't paying attention.

Happens all the time, nbd, right? >
Well, before you can even explain that it was a mistake, the vendor stands up on the table and announces to the whole convention via megaphone that you're a dirty scam-artist who's not to be trusted.

The whole crowd turns on you. You try to explain, but no one listens.
You run home, embarrassed, scared; you've never dealt with anything like this before and you don't know what to do, so you wait it up and hope it will blow over.

But it doesn't.

That night, you get a call from the convention to find out you've been banned for life.

Diversion programs exist to provide people charged with minor offenses—like petty theft or simple drug possession—with an off-ramp that shields them from the lifelong burden of a criminal record.

But a new rule from the Trump admin would undermine their very purpose.

The proposed rule would force federal jobseekers to reveal if they've participated in diversion programs—a major step backwards when it comes to fair chance hiring for federal jobs.

If Trump cares at all about the First Step Act he doesn’t miss an opportunity to brag about, he should withdraw the rule immediately.

In the meantime, it's incumbent on #justicereform advocates across the political spectrum to stop the rule from taking effect.

It is imperative we expose the ongoing #GOP narrative that uses Leader Nancy Pelosi as a lightening rod for misogynistic, ageist and partisan attacks and what motives and attitudes lie behind it. /1 #IStandWithNancy #GOPLies #DemocraticPrincipledLeadership
In order to get at that truth, it is vital for voters to meet Nancy Pelosi, understand her background, accomplishments and values as well as her vital importance to the Party of the People./2
Nancy Pelosi has consistently put her constituents first and foremost and as Speaker and Minority Leader she has served all Americans with the same commitment and intensity./3 #PrincipledDemocraticLeadership #IStandWithNancy
