If you’re mad that low security prisons have recreational facilities, because a privileged person you don’t like is going there, you’re a dupe and the reason we have a carceral state with a criminal justice ratchet that only tightens and never loosens.

You’re going to really regret this tweet in favor of going easy on her when she reoffends to get her kid into grad school.

I’ve read the kids’ interviews. It seems . . . .unlikely.

Ken, should we increase sentencing guidelines for white collar crimes like fraud, in parallel with efforts to decrease those for drug possession ?

I think lowering for drug possession is a vastly more important goal.

I have always thought that many of the classes at prisons (yoga, music classes, AA, etc) are led by inmates or community volunteers. How can that be a bad thing?

They should be staring at a wall when they’re not being beaten.

I’m mad that tax dollars go to recreational facilities in prisons. Period.

Well, that’s dumb, because every study shows that spending more on education and rehabilitation and recreation decreases recidivism and saves money.

That teenager in MI who was locked up bc she DIDN’T LOG ON during the height of the pandemic might have appreciated some yoga.
