It looks like our prison or, rather, punishment system, has as bad an outcome as the world's most expensive health "care" system--ours of course. What does this say about our nation? Is it only the prison system that is the problem or is it more systemic than that?
Very striking portraits--the real deal. The many lines in their faces are roadmaps of suffering. We can end such needless pain.
Wow, shocking, sad as system that causes so much suffering and human wreckage, looks like " someone" needs to look into a mirror and that aint the prisoners either.
victimless criminals should be released post haste and the criminals who create and maintain the reasons for all this madness be placed in prison post haste. this is an indictment straight on up from reagan (just say 'no' while cocaine flowed from ollie north and company) to obama who can't seem to stop the corporate power that would continue the corporate prison system. it is evil and very indicative of a society that has lost its moral compass. greed rules!!
As long as we live in the Fourth Reich instead of the
Constitutional Republic of the United States of America, (unless we are wealthy and powerful) we are all prisoners.
