prisonization animation

mark fiore has a new cartoon titled the united states of incarceration. although mr. fiore's treatment of criminal punishment can be criticized on several grounds, it illustrates how non-criminologists are connecting the dots between large-scale incarceration, poverty, inequality, and abuse.

i might find fault with his numbers, but i can't disagree with mr. fiore's tagline: i'm happy just the way things are, because problems on the inside travel near and far -- like right to your neighborhood!
