Helpful or Hurtful?DVD - 2004
Since the "three strikes" laws went on the books, the resultant overcrowded prisons, judges with restricted discretion, and lack of adequate treatment for drug offenders have prompted a debate over the effectiveness of the laws. This program investigates whether "three strikes" is helpful or hurtful by highlighting one woman's case in California, and Alabama's attempt to cope with an escalating prison population.
