Lockdown America: Police and Prisons in The Age of Crisis., Christian Parenti.
As I read this book about the History of the Mega-Prison system that we have today, I was horrified.
Not only is it a History it also describes the Modern-Day system.
I cannot believe what the Author describes.
I only wonder just how much of it is Really true.
If it is then it would be a really good time to change it.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in reading about what happens 'behind the scenes' in our prisons.
Even though a lot of those incarcerated individuals deserve to be in prison, they Do Not deserve to be treated like Cattle.
(P.S.--Cattle don't Deserve to be treated the way Cattle are treated in this Country either.)
Welcome to Our Police-State. I trust your visit will be a Pleasant one.
