What George Soros doesn’t understand about crime and true justice

“George Soros took to the Wall Street Journal this week to defend his financial support for ‘reform prosecutors.’ He began by asserting that ‘Americans desperately need a more thoughtful discussion about our response to crime.’ I couldn’t agree more. That’s why I wrote a book (out last week) on our ongoing national debate about crime and justice. Sadly, Soros’s piece failed to deliver that thoughtful discussion. Instead, the philanthropist offered a shallow, essentially data-free collection of platitudes (‘If people trust the justice system, it will work’) and incomplete observations. Soros highlights the statistic that ‘black people in the U.S. are five times as likely to be sent to jail as white people.’ … Such a contention is meant to persuade the reader that these incarcerations are mostly (if not overwhelmingly) illegitimate, the product of racial animus more than anything else.” (08/02/22)
