Chris Christie

The thing about the guy is, he’s not always a complete asshole. He proposes some good common-sense things sometimes:

TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — Lawmakers on the Assembly Judiciary Committee are considering measures to change the way New Jersey’s criminal justice system deals with nonviolent drug offenders.

One bill would create mandatory drug treatment in two counties as a two-year pilot program.

A second bill would automatically erase the criminal records for people who successfully complete drug treatment.

Gov. Chris Christie has proposed mandatory drug court statewide for people who qualify. He says it’s time to empty prisons of inmates who are drug-dependent but not criminals.
