You may see this and laugh.... but nothing about this photo is funny. I see the representation of a flawed system used as an extension of slavery for years. I see a confused young man with a hope to survive, a will to live, but a destiny to die. The pain, the penalties, and the prosecution. The privatization of the prison system and the back room handshakes between paid attorneys and prosecutor. I see a slough of closed schools and mental health facilities, but prisons being built everyday. Make bond, make commissary, or make 15 cents an hour. What’s fear? What’s fair? What’s free?
