Note from Attorney General Eric Holder
Recently, Attorney General Eric Holder noted, "Although incarceration has a role to play in our justice system, widespread incarceration at the tribal, federal, state and local levels is both ineffective and unsustainable". Additionally, he indicated that in 2010 the United States spent $80 billion to pay for the costs associated with incarcerating a large portion of our society.
