Beyond Prison

The website I chose was www.beyondprison.us This website focuses on the idea of bettering prisons. They offer statistics that basically show there are too many undeserving people in prison. They advocate the idea that prison has the potential to give "opportunities for healing and change" rather than to just punish. There is a quote on the website that says, "hurt people hurt people, and healed people heal people." The website also makes prisoners relatable, by sharing prisoners participating in programs already placed in their prison, like theatre, dancing, or gardening. To play devil's advocate, all though many people are falsely incarcerated, there are those who deserve to be there and won't change. There sentence now becomes more easier for them. Are they actually doing their time if they enjoy prison? by Jennifer Aquino
