From Washington Examiner :
Another expert, the R Street Institute’s Arthur Rizer, agreed with the policy of compassionate coronavirus relief but warned it could have political consequences.
“While there are no perfect solutions, releasing some low-risk individuals is smart policy,” he told the Washington Examiner. “However, those releases could come at a cost to the reform effort. Every offense committed by individuals who are on ‘COVID-19 release’ (and there have already been a few), makes the public feel less safe. And people who feel unsafe have made terrible criminal justice decisions in our past.”
