Supreme Court Ruled in 2012

April 18, 2018

The Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that teens cannot be sentenced to life automatically for any crime.

Do we know if they are still being sentenced to life without parole and still subject to degrading and inhuman treatment that would shock you, anger you, and bring you to tears?

Just like factory farms and slaughter houses, prisons are hidden from the public because prisons as terrible as ours can’t be happening in America.

A Broken System

Many people with mental problems end up in prison. Many people with drug problems end up in prison. A great number of people are just broken in some places and end up in prison. These are the people that don’t belong in prison, with a little help they would be able to live in this broken world with the rest  of us.

In America we are too eager to condemn people for breaks that let the light in. We must care more about extreme punishment and mass incarceration. The true measure of our character is how we treat the incarcerated and condemned.

We have 2.3 million people in our prisons, more than any country in the world. As a nation we must be the most violent people on earth, who own the most guns. More than any modern country in the world.

Or is the reason that we throw everyone in prison because we don’t know what else to do with them anymore?
