Some of our communities can’t even drink their own water because it’s so poisonous” said Klee Benally, a Dine revolutionary who works all over America but lives in Flagstaff, Arizona.

Punishment, Revenge, and Torture: The Heart of America’s Criminal “Justice System”

Punishment is central to criminal justice practice in the United States. Punishment is the act of making someone suffer for a fault or crime.

"American Crime Control As Industry" and "Street Crime vs Corporate Crime and The Truth"

There are several reasons why the prison industrial complex (PIC) continues to grow in America, and I will focus on two of the most important. The first is that in punishing people we as a society attempt to appease the fearful side of our own human nature. The second is that vested interests keep this very unsuccessful system going. Just as steel companies need iron and timber companies need trees, so prisons use people as their raw material.

 

The violence that hurts us all

“It’s okay, Puddin, it’s okay, we’re good.” I was more focused on calming my 10 year old daughter down than tending to my knee I hurt while hitting the floor as “Hood Terrorists” riddled our block (Eddy and Laguna Sts.) with bullets that missed my neighbor&rsquo
