If we choose to see the criminal-justice system as a process by which we try to correct people who have done wrong (we do call it the "Iowa Department of Corrections", after all), then one of our concerns as a society ought to be what happens to people once they re-enter life among the general public.

In this conversation with Arthur Rizer, a former police officer and Federal prosecutor, we hear why one of the ways we could help get a grip on crime in America is to make sure we're not putting up unreasonable barriers to people getting jobs. Rizer also has some valuable insights on whether we're really in the middle of a criminal apocalypse (spoiler: far from it).
