Laws should focus on positives

By
From page A4 | January 02, 2013 |

The more laws we have to break, the more criminals we have. The more criminals we have, the more jails and prisons we need to house the criminals, and the more law enforcement officers we need to arrest them.

I believe prison and jail reform starts with the laws we have. I believe laws need to be written in a positive way; let people know what they can, should and must do. Our legal system is long overdue to be overhauled. Lawmakers need to work on rewriting the laws of the land, to accentuate the positive, instead of the negative.

That should keep them busy for a while, instead of making more and more negative laws, which cause the overcrowding of jails and prisons, which cost more and more to build, which taxpayers pay for.
