Breakout – The Conservative Case for Prison Reform

In this episode of the Breakout with Newt Gingrich podcast, Newt interviews Pat Nolan, an expert and key conservative voice on prison reform. In recent years, members of the conservative movement, particularly Republican governors, have begun to pay close attention to the dire situation within our nation’s prison system and have enacted reforms to lower the costs associated with running these prisons and ensure that offenders do not return to prison once released. Initiatives such as Right on Crime have also been leading the charge for conservative criminal justice reform by focusing on “reducing crime, lowering costs and restoring victims.” These initiatives, coupled with legislative action will be the key to reforming our broken prison system.
