Releasing Nonviolent Criminals from Prison

Some politicians and criminal justice practitioners are for releasing nonviolent criminals from prison. So, under this policy, who gets out? The handful of shoplifters who actually go to  prison would get out even though retail thieves put countless stores out of business. A single embezzler can send his or her company into bankruptcy. And what about the check forgers, counterfeiters, credit card swindlers, con artists, car thieves, home burglars, and smash and grab jewelry thieves? And don't forget witnesses who lie under oath, criminal voyeurs, and drug dealers who bribe cops? People intent on decriminalizing nonviolent crime should be reminded that nonviolent crime is not victimless crime.
