Inside Looking In 4-2-18 The American model of incarceration is broke and broken. Dept. of Corrections throughout the land are the only businesses, and they are businesses, that produce a defective product and blame the product. We are dealing with human beings and if society takes on the responsibility of incarceration, then rehabilitation or at least the true attempt at, must be part of the equation. The vast majority of prisoners at this very moment will be released some day. Allthough we may not move in next door to you, we will be standing in line next to you at the grocery store. We will be the ones fixing your car, the ones repairing you roof, mowing your lawn, picking up your garbage. You may not see us, but we will be there. What kind of person do you want that to be?
