63. Thanks for calling me irrational.

I’ll say it again: I agree with him. Prisons are needlessly punitive to most of their prisoners and also serve as advanced criminal training camps. Police are out of control (and spare me any “not all police” bs) and emotionally and intellectually incapable of handling most of what they encounter while protecting property rather than people. The system is beyond broken and needs to be dismantled to be reborn in a more humane, just, and restorative system.
