32% of the correctional population is actually incarcerated yet 88% of correctional funds go towards this segment of the population (Mallicoat p. 312 – from Pew, 2011). The portion of the corrections system that suffers is obviously community corrections. During the beginning of the 1970’s there began to be promulgated the perspective that community corrections was “soft on crime (Mallicoat p. 309). In an odd little concurrence of opinion on an issue, both liberals and conservatives agreed that rehabilitation should end as a main component of corrections. Liberals felt that discretion lead to inequality of racial and class based incarceration and Conservatives argued to limit the discretion of too lenient judges and to get tough on crime to protect the communities and uphold the rights of victims.
