many prosecutors load up charges against defendants to force a plea bargain. what can be done to limit or prevent this practice

will your policy allow multiple counts arising from the same incident to count as multiple strikes for instance a man arrested for aggravated robbery because of the use of a weapon is charged with aggravated robbery and a felony gun possession charge should that count as 1 strike or 2

if one of the alternatives was supervised probation how would you convince the public that it would be more cost effective for the person to be supervised than incarcerated

show the public where you would be saving money by not incarcerating the perpetrator

if brought up in the legislature to be an amendment to the law could this be grandfathered in to help older inmates

could this have a backlash from the public or would they approve how why
