Upon learning that the U.S. Sentencing Commission issued a 78-page document suggesting amendments to sentencing guidelines to reduce sentences and increase use of alternatives to incarceration for corporate crime, I have two immediate thoughts: 1) That's probably a reasonable idea, but 2) Why should crimes committed by corporations be first in line for reduction instead of crimes that apply to average people?
Drug sentences are also too high, but the priority is keeping the Wall Street guys out of prison? First things first, I guess.
