Jesse Lava, campaign director of Beyond Bars, and Preston Shipp, a former prosecutor and a professor at Lipscomb University, join John Fugelsang to discuss the need for mass incarceration reform in the United States. “The United States spends more than $200 billion a year locking people up, once you count cops and courts. If we took a fraction of that money and invested it in prevention programs, rehabilitation programs, community supervision, taxpayers would be a lot better off because they’re not paying to have people behind bars, and our streets would be safer,” Lava says. “Meanwhile, families wouldn’t be ripped apart by mass incarceration. Right now, 2.7 million children have a parent behind bars.”

  You know massa ain't gonna go for that!  Hell...that's how he has comperstated[sp] for slavery.  Since he can't enslave folks legally, he haas created a way and call it prison.  Genius.  Cuz there's more immates than there were slaves.  And more mola.  Brilliant.  Cuz massa got to make his money soooooome way.  But what gets me?  Blackfolks know this and they continue to kill each other and do things to feed massa's lifestyle and then blame it on poverty and being in the hood.  And that just DON'T fly with me anymore.  Cuz at the end of the day.....the responsibility belongs to BEHAVIOR.  But many upon many blackfolks have PAWNED their freedom in terms of committing crimes that will most definitely put them in jail all for the SMELL of money.  Cuz most times, a lot of 'em don't even get to SPEND it.     So I am not for just blaming massa cuz every body knows what his bottom line is.  I blame or point finger to the community that refuses to CONTROL their children until it's toooooooooooo late.  Then they wanna scream "We've been played by the whiteman."  Yeah right.    I will accept that if blackfolks just got off the boat and been on land for a few months....they just didn't know....but!  If blackfolks been here for yeeeeeeeeears?  Nope not gonna fall for excuses especially from those who continue to decay and destroy the place where they eat, sleep and live. 

 

When will blackfolks WAKE the fock up?  The way this prison system's been going....probably NEVER.  But they will of course continue to  complain and blame.  And will also continue to do absolutely NOTHING to mitigate this horrific, damaging  and generational legacy that is continuely destroying our culture. But!   

  I agree my sista.  And it starts when blackfolks are LITTLE.  And then it moves onward when they are in school and TAUGHT about their history.  Where in the hell are our so-called black leaders?  They should be implementing an all black-school that specifically teaches black history in pre-school and elementary levels.  Cuz I'ma gonna tell ya.  It's like eating BAD food when you're in a history class and a white teacher is teaching white history and willingly omit black folks in terms of that history.  They boost about the Romans and The Greeks and how intelligent they were and how savage and backwards Africans were/are.  And blacks believe them without questioning the information.  Truth is both groups [Romans and Greeks]were homosexual pedophiles that debased women and children.  So I say, we as black people should take responsibility of telling our OWN story in terms of history...first.  Cuz once children know the truth about themselves, they are NOT easily lead by propaganda or bullshyte.     Why we are not going in that direction absolutely STUNS me.  And that is the ONLY way, in my opinion, that this self-destructive attitude that young black people have about themselves can be eradicated.  They are HUNGRY for the truth.  And if they are willing to DIE for the lies they have been told....I know they will be MORE than willing to LIVE for the truth of who they are not only to themselves but to the OUTSIDE world.  And that is the keystone of it all.  But the question is...what is taking everybody soooooooooo long to get this thing started?  But!
