Hurricane Irma

Posted on Friday, September 29th 2017

Dear Friends,

We had some downed trees, downed power lines and cable, a missing fence, and a leak in our storage room. In short, we are definitely in the lucky group of those affected by Hurricane Irma. We apologize for all of the delays. We are all back to work tomorrow and will be getting caught up. Sorry for our absence. As always, thank you for your support!

Prison Myths

Posted on Tuesday, May 16th 2017

America is obsessed with "tough on inmate" policies. Elected and appointed officials seem to usually come down on the side of austere conditions and treatment for the incarcerated when given a choice. Politicians often speak from their bully pulpits about how inmates don't need better conditions and don't need more rights. The media routinely use the worst inmate possible to put a face on any issue. After all, it's about selling stories these days, not telling them. Indeed, even Charles Manson has become the face of cellphones in prison because he has been caught with one.

In fact, one of the most comprehensive studies on the matter was done by the Minnesota Department of Corrections.
