Probation Violation

Violating the conditions of probation can lead to serious consequences.  Judges are not so forgiving when persons are given probation and they subsequently violate the conditions of probation.  The judge may revoke the person and issue a warrant for their arrest.

A Conservative View of Incarceration Reform

I am pretty tough on the left wing in my approach to incarceration reform, because the fight against "mass incarceration" usually takes on a socialistic, victim-oriented approach.
