It’s time we asked, do we care more about how we treat our citizens in the social justice system, or the effectiveness of police?
The US incarcerates more people than any other nation on the planet.
Is it because we criminalize social problems, as Ta-Nehisi Coates, National Correspondent at The Atlantic suggests, or because the “public actually cares a great deal more about how they are treated…than they care about the effectiveness of police”? as Tracey Meares, Professor at Yale School states?
However you dice it, no matter your opinion, the fact remains.
This is a conversation we need to have.
