Mr Roberts, both of what were changed by constitutional amendments?

And Mr Gutzman, are any of the things you mentioned federal issues or are they things that state or local laws have covered? I will agree, however, that we are quick to lock people up. But you should all be reminded that we have had presidential elections in which law and order were issues and that was generally from the right side of the aisle. That is the result. On the other hand, many things have also been criminalized at the federal level, particularly with drugs.

There is also the issue of operating prisons as a profit-making enterprise, which of course is entirely outside of the scope of this forum.
