2019 highlights: The prison-industrial complex

It’s 2020 and the Redacted team takes a look back at their highlights from the year on America’s mass incarceration industry. Tune in to learn about the reality that the US places millions of its citizens in through the over-policing of low-income communities, draconian sentencing, and a for-profit industry that allows businessmen to capitalize on the labor of the unfortunate people placed in their cells. The episode covers the corporate media’s dehumanization of prisoners, the real US prison population, jails profiting from prisoners’ phone calls to their families, racist policing, and more. There’s even some good news in the release of Cyntoia Brown last January.
