"A Christian Perspective on Prisons"

Getting tough on crime is just another version of an anti-Christian moral code.


Very simply, as the nation with by far the highest incarceration rate in the world, neither the public nor the mainstream news media wants to know anything about prisons. Prisons are the depositories of our social programming and education failures. "Get them out of our sight."
In the mid-70s, the American middle class began its decline as real wages stagnated and social safety nets were undermined. Coincidentally, the incarceration rate sky-rocketed shortly thereafter.
