Any thoughts on this?
I always say prison is punishment and nothing they do is for the benefit of the prisoner…. they don’t even offer rehabilitation programs anymore. Seems the system’s main concern is solely money. Prison labor is a billion dollar industry. Some call it modern day slavery. I would agree but staying out of prison seems like the ideal way to avoid the enslavement and/or extortion.
On the flip, there does seem to be a prison pipeline set in place for brown and black boys in particular. It’s such a complicated issue. I’d love to open up dialogue about it.
