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

Entertainment Weekly, by Luria Freeman

Original Article

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 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 — Former Vice President Joe Biden is tiptoeing toward a potential presidential run in 2020, even broaching the possibility during a recent gathering of longtime foreign policy aides. (Snip) A presidential candidate twice before, Biden would be 78 on Inauguration Day if elected in 2020, a concerning prospect for some Democrats even though he´s only a few years older than Trump. One possibility that Biden´s longtime advisers have discussed privately is that he could announce his intention to serve only one term, clearing the path for his running mate to take over in 2024 and potentially setting up Democrats

WASHINGTON – It turns out Donald Trump wasn’t the only candidate the Russians allegedly tried to help during the 2016 presidential campaign. A 37-page indictment resulting from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation shows that Russian nationals and businesses also worked to boost the campaigns of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Green party nominee Jill Stein in an effort to damage Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Russians “engaged in operations primarily intended to communicate derogatory information about Hillary Clinton, to denigrate other candidates such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and to support Bernie Sanders and then-candidate Donald Trump,” according to the

WASHINGTON - Frigid iguanas in Florida. Snowball fights on North Carolina’s beaches. Recent winters have delivered a bitter chill to the Southeast, reinforcing attitudes among some that global warming is a fraud. But according to a scientific study published this month, the Southeast’s colder winter weather is part of an isolated trend, linked to a more wavy pattern in the jet stream that crosses North America. That dipping jet stream allows artic air to plunge into the Southeast. Scientists call this colder weather a “hole” in overall global warming, or a “warming hole.” “What we are looking at is an
