Clinton Explains Disastrous Criminal Justice Policies

We recently noted that a former U.S. Pardon Attorney said that Bill Clinton
... did more to damage the federal justice system than any body else. And he also damaged the federal clemency system, in a very ... of course, his Justice Department contributed to that, frankly, but he certainly did his part to bring into disrepute that system.
Now that many are wondering if Hillary Clinton intends to undo/repair her husband's disastrous work, Bill has let it be known that he is OK with all that. You see, he has an explanation for his ruinous policies. In a recent interview with CNN he said:
"The problem is the way it was written and implemented we have too wide a net. We have too many people in prison. And we wound up spending -- putting so many people in prison that there wasn’t enough money left to educate them, train them for new jobs and increase the chances when they came out that they could live productive lives."
So you have it. In his administration, the only real "problem" was that the law was 1) "written" poorly and then it was 2) "implemented" poorly. Other than those two minor hitches, there were no major complications. Certainly no one's fault. SMH
