Don't believe these myths about white collar crime

White collar crimes, including graft, money laundering, insider trading and tax fraud are commonly equated with theft or burglary, but studies have shown that the psychology of the white collar criminal is very different than that of the standard burglar. Unlike someone who is robbing a bank at gunpoint, white collar crimes embrace a kind of cognitive dissonance. Since the person committing the crime can't really see actual human victims, it's harder for them to recognize when they've gone over a line.

Evidence shows that incarceration doesn't work

Florida has been undergoing something of a reformation, at least where its criminal justice system is concerned. Legislative changes have -- for the first time -- reversed the tough-as-nails approach to all drug offenses that the state adopted in the wake of the War on Drugs back in the 1990s. Now, judges will finally have some discretionary power when it comes time to sentence at least some first-time drug offenders.
