Interview Highlights

– On President Obama’s decision to release 6,000 federal inmates this weekend: “We have to be very concerned about who we’re letting out.

One of the issues of concern is when people go to jail, often times they go to jail with negotiated charges, if you will, so that somebody that is in jail that seems like they’re non-violent, they may in fact have crimes of violence in their record.”

–  “Judges need to – and district attorneys, and we the police, and the public – need to take into account that some people, I’m sorry, they’re criminals. Some people are bad people, and we need to separate the bad people from the good people.”
