"Smart on Crime and Easy on Taxpayers"
Jerry Madden, a senior fellow at Right on Crime, is a former Texas House Corrections Chairman. He wrote, "Texas criminal justice reform a model for U.S.," which appears in the February 17, 2013 edition of The Washington Times.
Mr. Madden learned important social and economic lessons about the criminal justice system, and he acted upon such knowledge by closing prisons, saying, "… we could enact policies that would reduce crime, prioritize victims and protect the taxpayers. We could be right on crime."
