In prison, you don't just pay high prices for services, you have to pay companies like JPay extra money for the privilege of accessing the service in the first place. No wonder found 1 in 3 families go into debt just to stay in contact with a loved one in prison.

Nice job, people of Hong Kong. I think this is what it's going to take to save the American democracy. Mueller ain't gonna save us. His report that no one read won't save us. We, the People, need to save our own democracy by getting into the streets and being loud.

Carceral liberalism relies on the notion of the prison as a necessary, ethically sound &perfectible cornerstone of 'American democracy.' Its not just the anti-mass incarceration organizers & artists & policy makers who espouse carceral liberalism -- its the prison system itself.
