Mitch Daniels: Strengthen laws against horrid practice of human trafficking

We should--no, we must--strengthen our laws against the horrid practice of human trafficking, and we must do it in time for the Super Bowl, the kind of event at which the exploitation of young women is rampant in the absence of such a tough law.

Mitch Daniels: Incarcerate in a smarter way, based on danger to society

One opportunity lies in reform of our criminal justice system. A bipartisan task force of police, judges, prosecutors, and others fashioned a package of changes to see that lawbreakers are incarcerated in a smarter way, one that matches their place of punishment to their true danger to society. We can be tougher on the worst offenders, and protect Hoosiers more securely, while saving a billion dollars the next few years. Let's seize this opportunity, without waiting.
