Ones of the best criminal justice blogs around is Prison Culture. It is political, critical, historical yet personal in its outlook. Each entry explores an aspect of our prison system, often putting it in a larger context. This latest piece on Prison Culture “To Young to Who Want to Die,” looks at the hopeless state so many at-risk kids live in using the words of poet Gwendolyn Brooks. Worth a read.
