THREE IDEAS IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE FROM SEPTEMBER 12 – 18, 2016
The country’s largest prison strike has turned to riots and it was revealed on Friday that a correction officer at William C. Holman Correctional Center in Alabama was stabbed – before the strike – and died. Tell me again how prisoner insurrection is about solidarity. That’s like saying gang rape is good teamwork.
Washington University in Saint Louis, Missouri released study results that demonstrate the total cost of incarceration for one year – when we figure in social costs like lost wages ($70 billion), reduced earrings of formerly incarcerated persons ($230 billion), shortened life spans ($63 billion) increased crime ($285 billion) and other costs – is one trillion dollars.
Jay-Z released a video about the war on drugs. Nice effort, but the reports about how many people with drug convictions fill our prisons and jails are wrong. Read why here.
A. CODE PURPLE (SUICIDE/ATTEMPTED SUICIDE) – 8-12 M.P.H., panicking, hyperventilating, often crying.
B. CODE BLUE (INMATE FIGHT/ALTERCATION) – One from every building because someone needs to bring the camera.
C. CODE GREEN (ESCAPE/ATTEMPTED ESCAPE) – 2 M.P.H. Circle, back-forth-back, shrugging.
D. CODE YELLOW (HOSTAGE TAKING) – Never seen one. Always stopped at ORANGE.

G. CODE WHITE (MEDICAL EMERGENCY) – 3 M.P.H. Except for guard who sprints from Disciplinary Board, beating everyone else.
