Webb has started the ball rolling on a study that will eventually he hopes change our penal system. Ours is broken as everyone by now certainly knows. What would work? A congressional study might start to find out. Obviously the idea of rehabilitation has to be the main outcome of a new plan. Inmates come out meaner than when they went in, and more proficient in their criminal speciality.

There has to be someway to enable the felon with some form of legal occupations when they return to society. There must be a way to infuse some element of hope that there is a better way to live. Any success that is achieved is a success for the individual and for our country in so many ways.
