The “law and order” rhetoric we are seeing lately is worrisome. So many people – Republicans, Democrats, independents, libertarians, Right and Left – are finally starting to understand that the “law and order” policies of the 80s and 90s were an overreaction. Too many laws and too many people in prison. Too many young people branded as super-predators, meaning they were hopeless. We are about to fall right back into those errors. It is just sad.
