Kamala Harris has had impressive success, especially after taking on Vice President Joe Biden in the second debate. Her policies are clear, needed, and useful. However, as a former prosecutor, her criminal justice record contradicts her policies about lighter jail sentences for nonviolent offenses. When she was Attorney General of California, she worked to slow the release of prisoners in jail, even after the Supreme Court found that jails were overcrowded. Inconsistencies like these are concerning because it shows that Harris might be more worried about becoming elected rather than sticking to her promises.
