"jason parr" Discussed on The Doug Collins Podcast

"Hey everybody, it's Doug Collins glad to have you back on the dog Collins podcast. You got a great friend coming back in today to be on the podcast Jason parr, due process institute. I've known him for many, many, many years that we go back from Georgia politics to D.C. politics everywhere in between. But I wanted to bring Jason back in to like a lot going on in the D.C. front and it's not just in legislation, but it's also in its election cycle. You probably will realize that watch list of this podcast Washington podcast went on. Election cycles tend to make politicians do sort of different things. And it's a lot of pressure going on. And I'm not criticizing that. I've been a part of and a lot of part of it. You have to sort of find what works is a guy who's worked with my campaigns consulted for me forever. Chip Lake says, he says elections can be about everything you want them to be. But at the end of the day, the voters have a say in what actually goes on. And that's true. But one of the areas that is so important that I wanted to bring Jason back in because I do a lot of work off podcast with this issue and that's criminal justice and criminal justice reform and Jason has been at the heart of that for a while. I work with the folks at justice action network. You've got a lot of groups out there that do this kind of work. But we're seeing some progress we're seeing some steps back and then what I want to talk to Jason about today is this idea that I saw a Republicans moving forward in what should be a really conservative issue combined with and they seem to be taking some steps back. So Jason Powell, welcome back to the dot com. Thanks for having me. It's good to see you as always. And that's a good time. I was going to say everything you're talking about in terms of criminal justice there are things that Republicans should be running on should be proudly proclaiming and your work on the first step act in Congress. You should wear as a badge of honor. And unfortunately, Republicans are going towards this tough on crime rhetoric that was so prevalent in the 1980s and 1990s. It's frustrating. Well, it is. And I think that's the part now. I wrote an op-ed a couple of weeks ago. We put it out and it was really hitting at that, you know, the whole idea that, look, if you're conservative, you know, this idea and then there's a lot going on. Let's just go ahead and I'm gonna hit it head on and you know, I know from your there's a lot going on in the Senate right now in particular the U.S. Senate that and one of the providers of that I'll name a name is Tom cotton and others who have said that the first step act was part of the reason for this crime wave right now. I mean, Jason, I mean, there's a lot of things you could say about the first step back. Okay, I'll take some criticism, both sides, you know, we'll look at it. No legislation is perfect. But that's just an outright. I'm glad I'm glad to use the word because if you didn't say it was an outright lie, I was going to. I was going to say it was at best disingenuous at worst. It's an outlier outright lie. The Justice Department recently put out a report and it's a progress report on the first step back. And that progress report found that the rear rest rate. This is re arrest. Re arrest is the worst barometer of recidivism, the best barometer of recidivism for my view as an advocate, someone who studies this issue is probably re conviction. But rearrest rate for individuals released under the first step back. This is about ten, it's just under 10,000 individuals was 15.9%. For comparison, for comparison, the bureau prison says that the recidivism rate for the general population is 43%, 15.9, 43%. You can't even compare the two. First step has been a success and Republicans should be out there proclaiming it. It worked. It worked. We have the proof. It's worked. Now, it's a short, this is a short term recidivism rate. I'll concede that much. But 15.9%, that is really something to be proud of and Doug, you should be proud of it as someone who authored the bill in the house. And helped guide its passage back through after had cleared the Senate. This is something we should all any one of us who work on this bill. I lobbied on this bill. I spent more time talking to Doug and his whole chief of staff in his council than I want to admit. But, you know, everyone who worked on this bill should be proud of that. And for Tom cotton to go out and say that the first step back caused this new crime wave is blatantly false. Blatantly false..
