Your Silence to My Injustice, is Injustice: My Today, Your Tomorrow–Bernard Kerik Criticizes ‘Insane’ Mandatory Minimum Sentences

Your Silence to My Injustice, is Injustice: My Today, Your Tomorrow– 

The signing of the Rockefeller drug laws in May 1973 by New York’s Governor Nelson Rockefeller is considered to be the beginning of the Prison Industrial Complex. The laws established strict mandatory prison sentences for the sale or possession of illegal narcotics.[4] Federal Judge Mark W. Bennett stated that mandatory sentencing destroys families and perpetuates the cycle of poverty and addiction, with no evidence that it works.[5]

Bernard Kerik Prison ReformThe lure of big money is corrupting and corrupt

Eric Schlosser wrote an article published in Atlantic Monthly in December 1998 stating that:
“The ‘prison-industrial complex’ (PIC) is not only a set of interest groups and institutions; it is also a state of mind. The lure of big money is corrupting the nation’s criminal-justice system, replacing notions of safety and public service with a drive for higher profits. The eagerness of elected officials to pass tough-on-crime #ALEC #NRA KOCH legislation – combined with their unwillingness to disclose the external and social costs of these laws – has encouraged all sorts of financial improprieties.”
Schlosser defined the prison industrial complex as “a set of bureaucratic, political, and economic interests that encourage increased spending on imprisonment, regardless of the actual need.”[4]
