The criminal justice system must be completely revamped, focusing on the safety of law-abiding citizens. This new system would feature truth in sentencing, greater parental responsibility for acts of children, a drastically shortened interval between arrest and trial, victim restitution, a more stringent parole policy, and opportunities for rehabilitation. The State Highway Patrol should be increased by at least 100 new troopers to insure the safety of our highways.
