You've heard of mass incarceration right? Tough on crime? Well, how did we get there? Do politicians only give lip service? This week we talk to Mike Campbell who is a professor at the University of Denver's Department of Sociology and Criminology. We take a look at legislation that has been passed and whether they uphold ideals of tough on crime during penal reform in New Jersey.

Mike Campbell has been published in journals such as Law & Society Review, American Journal of Sociology, and Theoretical Criminology.
