Justice Reinvestment: Opening Session Part 3: Rep. Schiff and Sen. Whitehouse In the past 20 years, state spending on corrections has grown at a rate faster than every state budget category other than Medicaid, increasing from more than $12 billion in 1988 to more than $50 billion in 2008. The Pew Center on the States reports that more than 1 in 100 American adults are now behind bars. Despite this huge increase in cost, recidivism rates remain high. Bureau of Justice Statistics research indicates that half of all individuals studied who were released from state prison were reincarcerated within three years. Most of the people released from prison, and many people released from jail, are placed under some form of community supervision. There are 5.1 million people (1 in 45 adults) on probation or parole today. Keynote speakers will discuss the need to address recidivism rates and corrections spending. They will consider how best to assist states and localities that are struggling with unsuccessful and unsustainable prison and corrections policies. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS • Congressman Alan B. Mollohan, D-WV • Congressman Frank Wolf, R-VA • Attorney General Eric Holder, US Department of Justice • Laurie Robinson, Assistant Attorney General for the Oﬃce of Justice Programs, US Department of Justice • Senator Sheldon Whitehouse, D-RI • Congressman Adam Schiff, D-CA • Mark Earley, President, Prison Fellowship • Honorable Sue Bell Cobb, Chief Justice, Supreme Court of Alabama
Justice Reinvestment: Case Studies of Efforts to Reduce Recidivism and Corrections Spending This session provides a summary of key corrections trends, an overview of the Justice Reinvestment strategy, and reviews how the strategy was applied in Texas and Kansas. In 2007, the Texas prison population was projected to grow by more than 14000 people in five years. Lawmakers enacted policies to avert the anticipated growth and save $443 million, of which more than $200 million was redirected to programs that helped reduce recidivism and improve public safety. Kansass prison population was expected to increase 22 percent by 2016 at a cost of approximately $500 million. Kansas policymakers directed $7.9 million to expand treatment programs and strengthen probation and parole; from 2007 to 2009, the state prison population decreased by 4 percent and recidivism rates declined by more than 20 percent.

How democrats lied to America, while using community reinvestment act and acorn to destroy the American financial system. Democrats (Barney Frank, etc) have let this housing crisis happen and I will show you why. Americans are being lied to and now we are being stolen from. CNN and the media is trying very hard to spin this, everything in this video will have a counter argument and an accusation that conservative republicans are liars. Yet left wing non-profit organizations are allowed to run amock leveraging government power to extract money out of banks for their own personal wealth, power and gains. Remember community reinvestment act in it's pure form did not cause this, but the act WAS used to put us into this mess. Watch, learn, research. Cato Institute seemed to have found this out many years ago. Next video on ACORN coming soon.

A Response to the video What Caused Our Economic Crisis or Mess At 1:00 of the video... talk about some mofo taking a source out of context: Source: What Is It? The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was established by Congress in 1977. The Act requires that deposit-taking financial institutions offer equal access to lending, investment and services to all those in an institution's geographic assessment area-at least three to five miles from each branch. In the case of large banks with many branches, the geographic area may encompass an entire county or even a state. Before the CRA, many bankers excluded low-income neighborhoods and people of color from their lending products, investments, and financial services - a practice known as "redlining". Community activists coined the term when they discovered that the failure of banks to make loans in some low-income neighborhoods was so geographically distinct, that it was easy to draw red lines on maps to delineate the practices. In the 1970s, activists in Chicago and across the country brought strong pressure on banks to lend equitably to all those in their communities. Since its passage, the CRA has been used across the United States to win tens of billions of dollars in new lending, investments, and services for communities. The National Community Reinvestment Coalition tracks more than $1 trillion dollars in community reinvestment pledges nationally. These pledges are explicit investments in equitable development goals, and finance many tools in this toolkit. at 1:05 ...

This video tells the story of ARRAs impact on the school districts of Clark County, Nevada, and Memphis, Tennessee, two of the thousands of American communities where the stimulus funds are making a real difference.
Greenlining CRA Myths & Facts In recent months, right-wing conservatives have been blaming a lot of things, besides themselves, for the subprime mortgage debacle. And many of these same individuals have long wanted to abolish the Community Reinvestment Act, a landmark law that helped to rebuild some of the nations most desolate communities by requiring banks to lend, invest and open branches in low-income areas that had historically been written off. These two goals have converged in a new attempt to blame the law for the financial crisis. Recent conversations pointing to the Community Reinvestment Act as the cause of the foreclosure crisis and credit market crisis are an attempt to deflect attention away from the real problem affecting our financial system. That problem is failed regulatory policy and oversight.
