another broad stroke: strengthening community relationships with governing bodies; efforts to reduce the "us and them" dynamic.

if we're going to think long term, curb the school to prison pipeline with increased access to after school programs, healthcare, food, and education for low income kids.

i disagree with a fine system; it favors the wealthy. i'm more inclined to accept restitution in the form of community service. we expand what that means and use it to further non-profit driven local goals.

I think we should end the private prison system but that seems to mostly help with preventing them from bribing public officials to increase inmates. Meaning, they are responsible for tougher sentencing guidelines and creating new laws that criminalize citizens.

That's good but both public and private prisons treat people like cattle.

For example, what laws were broken with Chemda and the others who were in jail with her? Probably none but they got treated like shit and ate garbage.

We need some kind of detention bill of rights. Right now, it seems we are holding them to basic human rights. We should have a higher standard for people who go through the system.

High level categories seem to be
Health (physical and mental)
Recreation
Education
Food


What other high level categories are there?
