probably, you know, read her book and all Generally, I approve Do not regret voting for her and I hope she can put some of the things she talks about into practice.The writing is nothing brilliant very workmanlike She gives you her thesis, she provides supporting evidence, she reiterates the conclusion Which makes sense this isn t meant to be a memoir it s of an instruction manual.A lot of this is stuff I already knew most prisoners are nonviolent offenders, most people who commit crimes will go back to prison, people you know are as likely or likely to commit crimes against you than strangers Some stuff I didn t expect early in the book, Harris calls out liberal for prejudice against law enforcement, and, well Guilty as charged, I guess I am by nature fairly suspicious of the police But one of the myths that she addresses is the notion that poor people don t want cops According to her and studies in fact, they do They don t necessarily trust the cops, but they do want them there Which, when she lays it out, makes sense, but is the opposite of what I d thought She also supports prosecuting parents of elementary students for truancy, which seemed to me like a horrible idea another way of punishing people for being poor, basically But the way she describes, prosecution was just another tool to use to help parents understand the seriousness of the issue, and very few were actually prosecuted She understands that there are reasons why people don t send their children to school it s not always because they just don t care She works with people to figure out ways around those reasons And it seemed to work That s really what I like about Harris she s very pragmatic Do prisoners deserve the second chance that a lot of the programs she outlines provides To her, it s almost immaterial These prisoners will re enter society, therefor we need to do what we can to keep them from committing crimes Keeping social services from them because they don t deserve it is cutting our nose of to spite our face My one serious reservation is her section on internet crimes not that she s totally wrong But she references Oprah s show on internet pedophiles, and well Let s just say some sources there were dubious It makes me sad, because in other sections she s very very into getting the facts, getting the correct data, and how important that is Anyway I have lots of thoughts I want to think about it But on first read through, I think she s on the right track, and I m glad I voted for her flag 5 likesLike see review Sep 20, 2011 Abby rated it really liked it

worth exploring However, Harris simply doesn t have enough to say to fill out a book She stuffs the pages by saying the same things over again in different words, and offering a few examples of non traditional approaches to crime prevention Even these are nothing new they are the well worn and expensive strategies of intervention and rehabilitation, which save a few hundred non violent offenders, and provide photo ops for liberal prosecutors Granted, the current models of incarceration save even fewer, and are perhaps expensive The chapters are helpfully terminated with a brief
