This is what we face as we talk about dismantling the prison industrial complex.  It's not simple, and we must commit to the long term.  But I commit to bringing mind and heart to the struggle.

"Facility staff will create a new policy and procedures manual, to replace the one that was lost after the facility flooded."

 

Amidst the horror, something to laugh about. They lost the only copy of the manual! Gee, I'll bet they scrupulously followed  "policy and procedures," they even had it written down. Somewhere. Before the flood.

 

The whole sordid story is written between those lines.

Thanks for this Nancy -- staggering and heartbreaking.  So important to elevate our consciousness on the thirteenth amendment loophole!

This is stunning.  Thank you.  This is what we face as we talk about dismantling the prison industrial complex.  It's not simple, and we must commit to the long term.  But I commit to bringing mind and heart to the struggle.

 

Let's not be swindled by the new "Right on Crime" proposals and the rush to privatized "community corrections" that do nothing to address racial and economic justice, but do, in fact, reify and further entrench old injustices.
