The United States imprisons more people than any other country. But In California, the money is finally running short, and a new policy aims to reduce the number of people in state prison. It’s called ‘re-alignment’ and the state says it's working. On this edition, Making Contact producer George Lavender investigates: is re-alignment the answer to the prison crisis? Could the incarceration nation finally be slowing down?
