57. Thank you for these links
I think that if the people here crowing that prison is too good for Rudolph and others understood the reality of the CJ system, they would be singing a different tune. My experience has only been working on CJ college textbooks. It has led to several substantial conversations with former incarcerees (Club Fed types all the way on down) that really opened my eyes. Justice, rehabilitation - these are all empty words. We punish people in this country, and we do it cruelly. To hear supposedly liberal, thinking DUers crow "Prison's too good!" along with the rest of the CJ system makes me sick.
