Justice For None: How the Drug War Broke the Legal System (Kindle Single)

Availability: Ready to download

When tough-on-crime laws passed 30 years ago during an era of drug-fueled violence, they were supported across the political spectrum. The subsequent “war on drugs” sent non-violent offenders to prison for decades and, in some cases, life. As a result, the nation’s prison and jail population today is 2.3 million, more than quadruple the number that were incarcerated in 1980 When tough-on-crime laws passed 30 years ago during an era of drug-fueled violence, they were supported across the political spectrum. The subsequent “war on drugs” sent non-violent offenders to prison for decades and, in some cases, life. As a result, the nation’s prison and jail population today is 2.3 million, more than quadruple the number that were incarcerated in 1980. One in 100 adults is behind bars in America. As many as 100 million American adults now have criminal records, and a disproportionate number of those are men of color. Washington Post reporters, in a series of revealing and wrenching stories throughout 2015, unlocked the prison gates and allowed readers to experience the human devastation wrought by sentencing policies now under scrutiny.

    This is a collection of articles and an excellent one at that. There is an angle here: authors explore in-depth this whole war on drugs debacle together with legal system injustice and mass incarceration issue. Excellent signature Washington Post journalism.

    Very good book shining a light on minimum mandatory sentences for nonviolent offenses, and what might be done to remedy disproportionate sentences as well as prevent futher injustices.
