Discussing Right On Crime with the Heartland Institute

Last week, I recorded a podcast with Steve Stanek of the Heartland Institute to discuss Right On Crime. Stanek mentioned a recent Chicago Tribune article he had read which indicated that in the 1960s, the Illinois Criminal Code was only 72 pages long — but is now about 1,300 pages long. We discussed this expansion in the criminal law — and the larger phenomenon of dramatic prison growth — before talking about a few possible solutions to the problem.
