And not sure it’s as easy as “increase funding.” States differ in how services are provided (state level vs county), who provides them (pub def vs. appointed), etc.
So… still the “what does this mean” problem.
1. No mention, at least directly, of violence. She talks of repealing Fed truth-in-sentencing laws, at at the state level those usually apply (just) to violent crimes.
But no direct talk of changing our approach to violence.
2. An attack on private prisons, with no parallel mention of the need to target the far more powerful public sector side.
Which, as I’ve suggested, IS something that the Feds could do at the state/local level: vox.com/the-big-idea/2…
That AEDPA piece is huge (tho the likelihood that McConnell would ever let that thru strikes me as low). It shows a seriousness about the wonky things that matter.
The rest, though, is a lot like Sanders’: IDs the problems, but fuzzy on fixes.
