President Obamas stance on crime control is to reduce the crime rate by making positive social changes in society. While Obama agrees that criminals must be punished he is opposed to the death penalty and supports a less retributive crime policy. Obama has signed into law a bill that will remove the disparities involved in drug charges but supports an increase in prison sentences for child pornographers.
