Fixer Upper

America fails to rehabilitate our prisoners. In fact the number of those incarcerated is increasing every year. America actually has more prisoners than any other country, and 50% of them end up back inside after release.

Solitary Confinement

Solitary is a tool used in prison all too often. But all it does is cause long term damage to people and making them a bigger threat to society than they were before.

Punishable By...

In America, Capital Punishment is very real and very prominent. Even North Korea refers to our methods as "brutal mid-eval. There have been instances of brutal assaults, guards playing Russian roulette with said accused.

And all this doesn't help us and doesn't help our economy it cost more to kill and maim our prisoners then the regular cost of prison life.

Don't Drop The Soap

While society may make jokes about it left and right sexual abuse is a very big problem in our nation's prison system. About 17% of adults and 20% of youth claim to have experienced some kind of sexual abuse inside the concrete walls. Our prison needs guards willing to pay attention to issues like this, because they're just making our prisoners angry at everyone else.

It's Up To Us To Fix This!
