A task force led by current and former justice officials has proposed a 15-point platform to improve the federal criminal justice system.
The group, assembled by Council on Criminal Justice, a national think tank, is seeking for independent oversight of the federal prison system, spending more money on reducing “victimization and trauma” in cities, and formally recognizing states that have legalized marijuana.
