19. Part of the problem is
that once someone is in the system they become a non person, and on release they don't automatically become a person again. Even though they may have paid their debt, they are shut off from society, stigmatized, there are many professional licenses that they can't get, many states will not restore voting rights, trying to get a job with a record becomes very, very hard.
As a result many people are caught up in the revolving door, they can't survive outside, and return to prison.
