Montana has a severe overcrowding problem in our jails. We need to look at why we are incarcerating people.

Nonviolent offenders make up most people in jail. In a civilized society, this is unacceptable. America is the freest society in the world and we have the highest rate of incarceration.

We must urge our legislators to decriminalize a lot of these crimes. The result will be a big reduction in state expenditures. We also need to look at more vocational-technical programs for troubled youth who are at risk I believe this will eliminate a bigger number of incarceration.

Remember, these tax dollars belong to we the people and it is our responsibility to hold our elected officials responsible.
