Re: “Without prison visits, lawmakers cannot address incarceration issues” [Nov. 29, Opinion]:
Once I learn this Op-Ed, I spotted I had by no means thought of lawmakers visiting prisons, and I discovered state Rep. Tarra Simmons’ factors legitimate and vital.
I’d add that one other good thing about lawmakers visiting prisons can be that they’d see precise incarcerated folks. I feel which may assist them see the incarcerated as folks, fairly than the stereotyped picture many people have of people who find themselves in jail.
I’m sure that might assist them make higher knowledgeable selections affecting prisons, the individuals who work in them and the individuals who dwell in them.
