The prison population is too high, but it is disingenuous to free prisoners simply because of overcrowding. Nonviolent offenders should be released but not as a mechanical response to overcrowding. Sentencing reform should should be implemented to stop overcrowding at the source.

@95RFYB4Socialist from California answered…4 days

Yes, but only in cases of non-violent crimes that did not target another person. Nonviolent thieves should still serve a sentence, nonviolent drug offenses should be given rehabilitation.
