“Does fiscal crisis promote criminal justice reform? From reading newspapers and magazines, one would certainly think so. State efforts to cut costs by downsizing prisons have been one of the biggest criminal justice stories in recent years.” This offers a perfect example of what I have been saying for years (Hello everybody, I'm so happy to be back!). If we stop giving them money, they will have to back down. Let us not pay our oppressors to oppress us. Tax revolt really can work. Throw in a healthy amount of non-compliance, and we have a winnable revolution in motion.
