"New York City Bar Association Urges Reduction of Mass Incarceration in Report" - New York Times. 9/28/2015.
Discussing the need to reduce mass incarceration through a variety of means, Heather Ann Thompson says Americans should look to make changes via public officials. “Through the politicians we elected, we chose the disastrous policies that led to the crisis of mass incarceration. We didn’t need to do it because of historically remarkable crime rates. We chose it, so we must now unchoose it.”
