Channel3000 editorial on crimeless revocation

neil_heinen_editorialThis week Neil Heinen and Channel3000 endorsed the idea that people who have not committed new crimes should not be returned to prison (i.e. no crimeless revocatons).

The editorial also mentions the public forum  announcing a new report (Excessive Revocations In Wisconsin) that documents the damage done by crimeless revocations both to the person directly impacted and also to their family and to their community.

Channel3000 joins a growing movement that is critical of crimeless revocations. This movement points out that states using alternative sanctions (other than reincarceration) with with people on probation or parole not only save money but they they reduce violent crime.
