It's a paradox!

Washington Post reporter Robert Pierre writes about a strange fact:

The District has the fourth-highest incarceration rate in the nation, according to a report that says jails nationwide are bursting at the seams even though crime is nearly as low as it has been in 30 years. [emphasis added.]

So, why is it that crime goes down when the criminals are in jail? What a paradox!

PREVIOUS attempts by liberals to deal with this conundrum are discussed here and here.
