Activists make the case for ´a world without
prisons´ in new Black Lives Matter memoir

Entertainment Weekly, by Luria Freeman

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/19/2018 8:37:44 AM

Patrisse Khan-Cullors and Asha Bandele, authors of the new book When They Call You a Terrorist: A Black Lives Matter Memoir, are self-described “prison abolitionists.” And they hope their book will inspire readers to consider a society where jails aren’t necessary. “I would like us to use our collective imagination to begin to imagine a world without prisons,” Bandele told Colorlines editorial director Akiba Solomon earlier this week during a conversation hosted by The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture and The Strand Bookstore. “There are places on this planet where prisons don’t exist. There are cities in India

A world without prisons?

Been done. Was done for centuries. Most cultures started out with the guideline that ANY infraction with the Social Code, whether it be tribal Laws or King´s will had one punishment: Death.

Is that what you want, BLM?

In most of the places mentioned by these loons, there may not be statistics of crimes nor places to incarcerate them, but that is due to other factors - usually a vigilante mob and again, Death.

We are a country of bad “Parenting” no excuses!
We are inundated with data, no one is exempte of what Parents expose their child to, unsupervised, Internet, school attendance, study habits, body art, latch key children, a government of law breakers, relative truth, phony facts, dishonest debate, voter fraud, 60 million deaths in the womb! You name it we have bad parents settin bad examples! We need parental responsibility classes in school! Yes you are your children’s keeper!
Circle back we are amoral!, and basically dishonest!

Do that, and in the end, entire neighborhoods will become prisons. When the crime rate becomes too high in a community, people avoid it. After that its becomes a simple matter of restricting traffic into and out of a neighborhood to control the spread of crime. They become ghettos.

BLM might want to think twice about what they are asking.

Silliness, firstly, to say these fantasists "make the case" for their idea of a prisonless society, citing parts of India where there are no prisons.

Do they realize that the caste system, supposedly abolished in the 50s is still in effect, in actuality.

Maybe they ought to move to those Indian prisonless communities and test out their theory? Have they changed their own behaviors? Do we have evidence of their transformed temperaments, making them suitable for such communities?

Are they claiming that these are crime-free communities?

Isn´t it India where there have been several sensational gang rape cases? In once instance, the villagers took the law into their own hands...

Until men (and women) are angels, we will need laws and the means of enforcing them with punishment for criminality part of that enforcement mechanism.

Western civilzations have over the course of time and trial and error, constructed a system of laws mostly humane and effective... not perfect, but with the goal of Justice in mind.

However, wherever men have attempted to create utopias, the self-appointed overseers ALWAYS must and WILL resort to the most monstrous forms of coercion in order to establish nirvana.

heh heh. nirvana

It is cheaper to build gallows than prisons, and much more effective.
Much of this country operated that way well into the 19th century.
Somehow I suspect that if these people start seeing their friends hanging from ropes rather than sitting in a cell watching TV with 3 hots and a cot that their opinion would change dramatically.

The alternative means that justice and punishment, would be swift, final, and with no appeal process. It would mean a return to public executions, canings, stoning, days in the stocks, and public humiliation.

If you have never read, "The Prophet", by Lebanese author, Kahlil Gibran, I strongly suggest it. It is a fantastic bit of reading.

Here is a link to his chapter on Crime and Punishment. Now, mind you, this is a poem. It was written in the early 1900´s and so it has a bit of the "Classical" tossed in and some words you may find have no definition except by you according to the context they are used.

find the chapter here: https://biblio.wiki/wiki/The_Prophet/Crime_and_Punishment

(But, by all means, do not stop with this one chapter- if you want a beautiful experience, read all the other chapters. Your day will be made. Just be prepared to come away feeling like an angel has touched your heart)

But, this can really make you think differently. I, having a background in law enforcement, found this chapter to give me an entirely different understanding of deviant´s as they relate to and affect the community.

Apparently, there is a bit of the "Leftist" view in Gibran´s writing, and the BLM idiots have taken it too the utmost fringes of sanity. I consider it proof that knowledge without understanding is the same as idiocy.

So what consequences would there be for murder, rape, theft, dishonesty, and the like? The only way to make prisons unnecessary is for every human to "do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I don´t see that happening this side of Glory.

Good grief. Then you would naturally end up with vigilante justice. Most of those released convicts, black or white, would end up committing more crimes. They would then be hunted down and shot or hanged. It would cut the cost of prisons though. A bullet is cheaper than a prison cell.

The Wild West was prisonless (local jails, but no prisons) and the method of dealing with criminals was swift and brutal (gun duels with sheriffs´ posses or lynching). Lawabiding people will not tolerate crime against them.

Be careful what you wish for.

Washington - Among recent pilgrims to the Arizona ranch of Senator John McCain was Joe Biden. The Republican, who has an aggressive form of brain cancer, urged the former vice-president to “not walk away” from politics, Biden told the New York Times. It did not take much imagination to see this as a metaphorical shove – into the next race for the White House. Biden has the desire, the pedigree – and the rage. On Friday, incensed by reports that a White House aide had dismissed McCain with the terse comment “he’s dying anyway”, the 75-year-old Democrat let rip, declaring

In the Democratic Party’s reckoning following the election of Donald Trump, an unlikely feud has erupted inside an organization at the heart of the progressive movement. Earlier this year, the board of directors of Wellstone Action — an influential training group formed after Sen. Paul Wellstone’s death — dumbfounded Minnesota Democrats when it voted the late senator’s sons off the governing board. (Snip) The issue stands center-stage in Minnesota, where Trump’s steamroller performance in rural America led to a near-disaster for the Democratic Party in 2016. Republicans took control of the state legislature,

Lakietha Lashell Lawrence, 27, was arrested by Dallas school district police officers on charges of assaulting a public servant. She was taken to the Dallas County Jail.

The woman says in a federal discrimination suit filed in Houston Friday that she and her minor children were boarding a San Francisco bound plane — the second leg of a three-flight journey from Nigeria to Canada — when an incident occurred involving a white male passenger that escalated to her being asked by United staff to exit the plane.

First lady Melania Trump is having an influence on children, but not in the way she may have expected. The first lady’s name is quickly growing in popularity among baby names in the U.S., according to a ranking released Friday by the Social Security Administration. Her name came in fifth among the fastest-growing girls’ names from 2016 to 2017, moving 720 spots up the list of the most popular girls’ names in the U.S. “Melania” was listed as the 1,650th most-popular name in 2016.

It´s prom season again: your social media is about to be overrun with pictures of teenagers in formal clothes and giant smiles, maybe evoking "Pretty in Pink" or "Carrie," depending on your high school experience. As a high school teacher, I have a ringside view of the whole event; I see how easily it can change from one person´s celebration to another person´s sorrow. There´s no shortage of ways that proms have been impacted by the same prejudices that mar society at large. Instances of segregation, homophobia, and racism have, for many students, tarnished the occasion. Just recently, Nordstrom Rack apologized to

SEATTLE - The Seattle City Council voted 5-4 Friday to approve a controversial $500-per-employee ´head tax´ on the city´s largest businesses. Mayor Jenny Durkan said Friday afternoon that she cannot support the proposal. The council voted on the proposal as a committee, which means another vote must be taken Monday before the head tax receives final council approval. An alternative plan that would have reduced the controversial head tax proposal failed to pass the committee vote. The alternative plan, backed by Durkan and City Council President Bruce Harrell, would have lowered the tax on businesses to $250 per employee from

Black Support For Trump Is Rising

The latest YouGov/Economist poll (May 6-8), one of a few that comprehensively breaks down support by ethnicity, has some frightening news for the Democratic Party. While President Trump’s approval holds steady among registered voters at 41 percent, his support among blacks in this poll is striking. If it holds for 2020, it could be devastating for Democrats. Among African-Americans, 16 percent approve of Trump, 10 percent are not sure, and 75 percent disapprove. While that sounds highly negative, these are high positives for a Republican politician among black Americans. Approval of 16 percent is 8 points higher than the 8

The moment of political reckoning began a day after President Trump’s inauguration, when millions of marchers protested his policies and treatment of women. That outpouring of energy has rippled through elections over the last 16 months, as women have turned out in force to vote — and often to punish the Republican Party. But for Democrats, the process of confronting sexual misconduct in politics has also grown complicated and emotionally fraught. If Mr. Trump’s election ignited this national conflagration, the president himself has largely escaped consequences for his behavior so far. And a number of the politicians exposed as predators

Apparently, the columnist has found the vice president guilty of the heinous crime of being a decent man.

Graham, who has traveled the globe with McCain and is one of his closest friends in the Senate, spoke after the White House refused to apologize for the crude remark and press secretary Sarah Sanders fumed about leaks rather than condemning the remark.

As death flutters around the back-yard deck of Senator John McCain, it’s sad to read reports that the scrappy Sandcutter regrets picking Governor Sarah Palin as his vice presidential running mate and wishes he had instead picked Senator Jos. Lieberman. The only person diminished by this kind of talk is Senator McCain himself, and the heroic Arizonan deserves better.Not that we lack for love of Mr. Lieberman. The Sun was the first newspaper to sketch the rationale for Mr. McCain to bring in Mr. Lieberman as his running mate. That was in an enthusiastic editorial called “The Logic of Lieberman.”

From its start, the Trump administration has been plagued by charges of “chaos.” From the revolving door of senior staffers — including two secretaries of state, three national security advisers and two chiefs of staff — to the president’s brash and sometimes boorish personal style, to his politically incorrect taunt-tweeting, Donald Trump has refused to conform to his political opponents’ conventional notions of what constitutes an effective White House operation.
