crime by building more jails is like fighting cancer by building more
- Paul Kelly, Little Rock, Arkansas, 1997
(Source: Paul Kelly, elected City Director, helped defeat a "jail tax," a permanent sales tax increase to expand the county jail. "Fighting crime by building more jails is like fighting cancer by building more cemeteries." Kelly and state Rep Michael Booker, also of the New Party, argued that drug prevention and treatment, not the construction of more jail cells, was the proper way to fight crime)
