PrisonMovement’s Weblog
I share news about our nations criminal justice system- a system I believe to be flawed, broken and corrupt. Many have a distorted view of prison and our criminal justice system, unless you have been involved, either first hand or by proxy. It is my goal and sincere desire to reach a large audience with the hope that I can ‘enlighten the masses’ . We have a national incarceration crisis…Lock’em up & throw away the key…at what expense?

    This site is invaluable towards our efforts to abolish the death penalty. Our voices joined, will rise to a level of which cannot be ignored. Capital Punishment is not only barbaric, it is flawed by nature: Decisions requiring infallibility made by those whom are fallible.

    Having had two siblings murdered, never once did I entertain a thought towards capital punishment – I would be outraged at any attempt towards that end result! Even barring all other reasons, you must consider the innocents that share these death sentences – perpetrators’ children, family, friends – all suffer the fate.

  2. Tim Woods Says:

    I applaud this blog. I think the passion is obvious, and the seriousness of the subject makes it incredibly worthy of peoples time.

    The taking of another persons life unwillingly, is never acceptable, under any circumstances. To kill, because they kill, eats away at the humanity we must be striving for to make the world better; and while a society supports the death penalty, it remains at arms length from achieving that humanity.

      Thank you for your comment Tim, the intention is clear – more voices, more perspectives, more realisation of the inappropriateness of capital punishment as a solution to anything. See the predictions blog earlier this year? We all have to speak out and take action – but it’s my belief we’ll see the death penalty take a massive hammering in the next ten years (USA, esp). Then we activists can turn our attentions to the other big cuplrits: China, Iran…, to human rights tragedies the world over and also to vital changes required across the breadth of the criminal justice system in our own countries and states.
