Rat Soup for the Jailers Instead...

Salon contributor Glenn Greenwald has posted an illuminating account of Virginia senator Jim Webb's National Criminal Justice Commission (.pdf) proposals.

When I was studying Ethics post-grad in Georgia, an instructor took us through a rigorous week outlining the parameters (and often sickening excesses) of the "Prison-Industrial Complex."

Anyone with a scintilla of conscience should recognize efforts to reduce the size of this vile edifice as heroic.

Read Greenwald's piece here.

Cheers,
