Quotation Of The Day: Crime And Punishment Edition

From this Randy Dockendorf article in the Yankton Press and Dakotan:
"We need to be smarter on crime, rather than just tougher on crime,” said [Republican State Senator Craig]Tieszen, the Corrections Commission chairman
I may regret flagging this comment with because God knows what some will consider "smarter." The entire article, however, does point to the fact that the "lock them up and throw away the key" ideology currently in vogue is bearing some bitter fruit. (Yes, that was a cheap allusion to The Shadow.)
