American Criminal Justice Policy examines many of the most prominent criminal justice policies on the American landscape and finds that they fall well short of achieving the accountability and effectiveness that policymakers have advocated and that the public expects. The policies include mass incarceration, sex offender laws, supermax prisons, faith-based prisoner reentry programs, transfer of juveniles to adult court, domestic violence mandatory arrest laws, drug courts, gun laws, community policing, private prisons, and many others. Optimistically, Daniel P. Mears argues that this situation can be changed through systematic incorporation of evaluation research into policy development, monitoring, and assessment. To this end, the book provides a clear and accessible discussion of five types of evaluation - needs, theory, implementation or process, outcome and impact, and cost-efficiency. And it identifies how they can be used both to hold the criminal justice system accountable and to increase the effectiveness of crime control and crime prevention efforts.

Pastor Kevin Alexander and the U-Turn World Ministries teams go into state and federal prisons, jails, and rehabilitation centers across the country to address the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women, children, and their families. During these services, we watch the power of the God transform lives one heart at a time in honor of Jesus Christ, who died on the cross for all of our sins! We've seen murderers, rapists, drug dealers, thieves, and even self-declared Satanists set free from emotional and spiritual bondage. Many have given up on these men and women, casting them away and out of their lives. U-Turn wants to tell them about the Love of Jesus Christ, the acceptance found on the Cross, and set them free from the power of Satan that has ruled over their lives.

LawlessAmerica.com began as the story of William M. Windsor's personal experience with judicial corruption and government corruption. Due to publicity about his efforts with the United States Supreme Court, thousands of people began telling Bill their stories, and this site morphed into a site dedicated to exposing dishonesty and corruption in government while presenting ways to battle this epidemic. Now, Bill is leading a coalition of the leaders and shakers in the battle against government corruption and judicial corruption. Join us as we discuss forming a coalition to combine efforts to accomplish something meaningful in this essential effort to save America.
