I once read a stat that said 62% of people in prison/jail have not been convicted.


I understand that a large portion of this probably also includes stat and local prisons/jails.


I also understand that there are varying circumstances with due process.


I also am aware there are many ideas for lowering Government costs related to prisons.


BUT this is a serious problem. Why don't we cut down on spending by fixing the court systems Fixing the court systems would save money twice over, Once for the courts and once for the prisons.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES


Idea No. 3944
