Quote of the Day | Feb. 5, 2020

“Justice is best served when we can begin making something that was broken, whole. Justice is best served stopping a crime before it starts. Justice is best served when people feel they can seek help without fear of being punished themselves. And while in some cases justice is best served behind bars, sentences should be chosen based on data and best practices to ensure we’re not causing deeper harm.”

-Jacqueline Blocker, Community Engagement Director at Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform [CNHI]
