Description

Missouri's prison population has doubled since 1990..and so has the prison budget. Reeves gives examples of inmates who serve time for things like not paying child support; he questions the wisdom of keeping them locked up, costing the taxpayers money instead of working to support their families. Reeves also explores alternatives to prison and compares Missouri's situation to other states.
