Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders unveiled his plan to reform the country’s “racist and broken” criminal justice system Sunday. The 2020 hopeful wants to end profiteering in the criminal justice system, and plans to ban cash bail and civil asset forfeiture, legalize marijuana, abolish the death penalty, boost funding for public defenders, increase accountability for law enforcement, stop criminalization of homelessness and addiction, and allow prisoners and those with felony convictions to vote — among many other measures. Sanders announced the plan while campaigning in South Carolina.
