Abolish US Prsons Industrial Complex

FSTV 7-31-09 Meshe Monge Ingirray?? Critical Resistance, www.criticalresistance.org

Perkinson, Robert. Texas Tough: the Rise of America’s Prison Empire. Metropolitan, 2010. Rev. Columbia Journalism Rev. (May/June 2010).
Kerman, Piper. Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison. Spiegel & Grau, 2010. Rev. CJR (May/June 2010).
Kerman and Perkinson give “two takes on the folly of our prison policies.”

Democracy Now (10-19-10) Amy Goodman interviewed Angela Davis for most of the hour, much of it about Davis’s experience with, views about, and advocacy of abolishing prisons. Prisons reflect a failed society. A genuinely caring society would largely eliminate prisons, as in Finland. Prison abolition is part of “building a new world,” as in the UN's phrase, A Culture of Peace.
Ms. Davis referred to the book Instead of Prisons. Here's information about it:
