I have heard a lot about this campaign, and the video we watched in class, “Books Not Bars” reminded me of this movement. I think these movements are so important- comparing our prison system with other countries, that focus on rehabilitation, it is really sad. Our prison systems and many people in society immediately want to punish criminals, and do not believe in giving them a second chance in society (for example, not letting them vote, making it hard for them to find jobs/housing, etc.) There is a really high percentage of criminals being locked up again after they are released. For example, in Norway, criminals are treated more like people, and their rates of returned criminals is very low, not to mention they have a very low crime rate in general. We should start rethinking where our money is going, and rather than building so many prisons, we should be working on making education a priority, and rehabilitating criminals, rather than punishing them and treating them in inhumane ways.
