Newt Gingrich on Crime
Former Republican Representative (GA-6) and Speaker of the House
You don't have to believe in the power of faith to appreciate the benefits IFI provides to the community: fewer victims, safer neighborhoods, reduced court cases, and fewer prisoners.
Many government officials find a faith-based solution unacceptable. They would rather have people commit more crimes and do more prison time than risk changing their lives with a faith-based approach.
[As part of the Contract with America, within 100 days we pledge to bring to the House Floor the following bill]:
The Taking Back Our Streets Act:
An anti-crime package including stronger truth in sentencing, “good faith” exclusionary rule exemptions, effective death penalty provisions, and cuts in social spending from this summer’s crime bill to fund prison construction and additional law enforcement to keep people secure in their neighborhoods and kids safe in their schools.
