    Well, can't be right on every issue, but it sounds like he's right on our biggest issue, so good luck to him.

    He's big on so called criminal justice reform and the legalization of drugs.He almost sounds as if he'd fit right in with Larry Kratzner.

    My idea of criminal justice reform would be a path for ex cons to re-normalization. To just open the door and let them out is a single ingredient recipe for disaster. Put them in a home where they can get shower, clean clothes and get a job and pull themselves up by the bootstraps. A last and final way out, fail that and spend life in a jail factory where they pay their way with no burden on society.

    Afaik. He's for legalization of weed, not all drugs. That's probably going to happen eventually no matter who anyone votes for.

    As far as criminal justice he's for education and job training for inmates to give them a better chance of success when they get released.

    Toure wants education programs in prison so inmates have a better chance at getting a job upon release and a lower chance of becoming a repeat criminal.

    “Thousands of people return home from incarceration to their families each year in our city. While an individual is incarcerated, they must actually be working on rehabilitation and restorative justice and we get to ensure that when individuals come home they have a strong likelihood of becoming a contributing member of society,” he said.
    Are you concerned that criminal justice reform policies will lead to more recidivism?

    I think that reform policies need to be data driven and measurable. For instance, one community based re-entry program that has had proven results is Prison Entrepreneurship Program. While in the program, participants receive something like an MBA degree. The program works. One-hundred percent of graduates are employed within 90 days of release. The three-year recidivism rate is only 7% compared to the typical 40% rates. We need to incentivize successful models with proven results and end programs and ideas that clearly don’t work. Thousands of people return home from incarceration to their families each year in our city. While an individual is incarcerated, they must actually be working on rehabilitation and restorative justice and we get to ensure that when individuals come home they have a strong likelihood of becoming a contributing member of society.
    From his own words^^^^
    Seems like a legit program with possible sucess to me. He's not a conservative by any stretch, but I think that gives him a shot at winning a seat that a conservative wouldn't have. I'm not from Philly, so I really don't have any dog in the fight. I'd vote for him though if I could.
