Welcome to New Dimensions Radio!
There’s been a lot of talk in recent years about getting tough on crime. You could say it’s working—in 2007 we had ten million Americans in prison or on probation. But is that really what we’re after? Attorney Sunny Schwartz says, “That ‘tough on crime’ stuff is such a fallacy, and it’s been hijacked. It’s a sham. When you have prisoners doing nothing all day on the backs of our hardworking taxpaying money, with a seventy percent failure rate, you know something is really wrong. We’ve been doing the same thing for 150 years. It’s about time we start getting tough on crime in an effective, smart, and successful way.” She’s developed a highly effective and smart alternative, one that asks prisoners to be accountable to their victims, and puts them in a rigorous program of education and rehabilitation. The results are nothing short of astounding. You’ll be fascinated as this tough-yet-tender, Chicago-born lawyer shares a no-nonsense approach to incarceration, that promises to make us all a little saner and a whole lot safer.
