Hillary Clinton wants to "end era of mass incarceration," to call for body camerasHillary Rodham Clinton
will call Wednesday morning for far-reaching reforms
in the criminal justice system that would “end the era of mass incarceration,” according to a campaign aide.
In a speech at Columbia University in New York City, Clinton will address the violence in Baltimore with plans for a new approach to punishing criminals, according to the aide, who requested anonymity because the proposal is not yet public.
The speech will mark the unveiling of Clinton’s first major policy proposal as a presidential hopeful, coming as candidates are under pressure to confront the unrest in Baltimore.
In Wednesday’s address, Clinton will also join the chorus of politicians demanding that police officers everywhere be equipped with body cameras. Clinton will argue they are necessary “to improve transparency and accountability in order to protect those on both sides of the lens,” according to the aide.
