The advent of technology and advanced writing and reading has brought about a wonderful and sometimes demanding age were everything and everyone can be recorder. This allows for truth, in essence, to prevail over propagandists attempts made by sates or controlling factions. One is more likely to believe a video posted on twitter over a bystander who was actually there than some main stream media outlet, and such are the times that these same media outlets have resorted to using these same mediums in order to add validity to the “story”. Marvelous times indeed.
For some time I have wanted to include some information and insight into the prison system here in the United States. As we move forward as a nation and look at the future and take into consideration the aging and coming generations there are many concerns and questions that come to mind.
Is the race disparity in the prison system a symptom of a much more ingrained and debilitating sickness plaguing our nation ?
Why do we insist in keeping all the convicted in confined places and doing nothing for society, infrastructure or their own general well being?
Is the private ownership of prison’s the best alternative?
