Philadelphia is one of the cities that has received 4.8 million dollars from the Macarthur Foundation for risk assessments and get out of jail free programs. Today, Philadelphia is still one of the worst crime rate cities in our nation. It is not hard to realize the systems do not work and endanger the citizens of our nation.

From what I just read he is not asking for “risk assessment “or “free release”. He is asking that non-violent offenders, after 10 years without any future bad behavior are given a 2nd chance by expungement of their past charges.

United Bail of America and Palmetto Surety have started addressing our state objectives to respond to issues that are appearing from state to state. We have established a task for three states, which we feel will help on a national level. In the months to come, we will provide updates and our current agenda full of information for all to review. Please keep in mind we are working on two campaigns at both National and state levels.
