MILLIONS OF AMERICANS HAVE BEEN HELD UNDER INHUMANE
CONDITIONS FOR YEARS FOR LITTLE OR NO REASON
Far From Being "Redeemed" or "Rehabilitated," Many Are Marked
For Life: These New Americans Are The Prisoners, The Victims Of Our Apathy
Sex, drugs and rock'n'roll may be a sport, an obsession, a dream or a lifestyle for many of us. But for some, it's a lifetime of incarceration. Millions of Americans who have done nothing to anyone else have been arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced and held for years for doing things that cops, prosecutors, judges, lawmakers and their families have done on a regular basis without penalty for even more years. A majority of those in prison in America today are there for drug "offenses" that are part of everyday life for most Americans at one point or another in their lives. Those who end up in jail are disproportionately young, poor, male, minorities and "troubled." That is, they are people whom society itself has not only failed, but who are themselves the victims of society's worst prejudices. Today, we place a musical key in the social locks on their immortal cells, and set them free. May it come to pass in the real world, some day.
