Crack Retroactivity and Plata

In this video, WSJ's Jason Riley interviews Heritage's Cully Stimson on the retroactive application of the crack sentencing reductions.  Riley also brings up the Plata decision and notes that the law-abiding people of poor neighborhoods will suffer most from the release of criminals, most of whom will be headed back to those neighborhoods.

Somebody at WSJ Online gave the video the regrettable caption "What is Obama Smoking?"  That's really beyond the pale, folks.  This is the Wall Street Journal, not the New York Post.
