Protest at state Capitol for incarceration reform

The Louisiana State Capitol was flooded with a sea of bright blue T-shirts Thursday when more than 100 members of the group Louisianans for Prison Alternatives came to support bills relating to incarceration reform.

The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) also*was there to support the group. Sarah Omojola, an SPLC policy counsel in New Orleans, said twice as many people as expected showed up for the demonstration.

Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate in the world, and legislators have grown concerned about the costs.?
