Corona (COVID-19) and Confinement

We discuss how reducing mass incarceration is connected to COVID-19. A crisis exposes institutional weaknesses within our society. One of America’s greatest structural weakness is our criminal justice system. It’s a system less focused on rehabilitation and reducing crime and more focused on confining the poor and profiteering. That is now coming to haunt America during the COVID-19 crises. We discuss how reducing mass incarceration is connected to COVID-19. Stopping the spread in overcrowded prisons is needed to stop the spread and flatten the curve. (36:32)
