Sen. Tom Cotton said Friday that the country that incarcerates more people per capita than any other has an “under incarceration problem.”
Cotton, a Republican from Arkansas, tweeted a clip of himself speaking on Fox News about the increase in crime currently happening in some US cities.
“This is all a result of naive and foolish policies that are letting prisoners out of jail early sometimes because of false claims that we have an over incarceration problem in this country or exaggerated fears about the coronavirus,” Cotton said.
