If given the attention it deserves, a new book should make significant contributions to the public discussions of US prison policy. The author, Shawn Griffith, was released in 2012 from Florida's prison system at the age of 41, after 24 years in prison.

The conditions in prison are deplorable. They probably will remain so as long as prisons are run for profit.. That and they seem to hire employees with psychotic tendencies. How can reform possibly happen in this type of an environment. Thanks for sharing!

Brutalizing prisoners foments hatred of our prison system. And this country. And contempt for our laws and law enforcement. Every ay-hole who abuses prisoners applies his slimy lips to the hiney of every bugnut who wants to see the USA destroyed.

Quote from the article...and it' s 'right on" ..and hopeful all will read on.

"The general taxpayer needs to understand how the abusive policies fostered by these groups worsen the U.S. prison problem and the debt crisis through wasted corrections expenditures.

Interesting read.
