Prisons as development

Posted: February 18, 2010 in Quotes
 
"Viewing prisons only in terms of economic
development ignores the fact that the raw
materials being transformed within the prison
walls are one’s fellow citizens…. The corrections
industry is a component of an economy built
on human misery."
 
    -Clayton Mesher, professor of Sociology,
     Washington State University
