OSI Prisons Podcast: Talking Texas Tough

Artists working on criminal justice can download a podcast of "Talking Texas Tough: The Past, Present and Future of Justice in the Lone Star State," a panel discussion at the Open Society Institute, April 14, 2010. The panel featured Soros Justice Fellow Robert Perkinson, author of "Texas Tough: The Rise of America's Prison Empire." Texas is now first in size of prison population, prison construction, for-profit imprisonment, supermax lockdown and executions. Says Soros: "The state's uniquely harsh, racialized and profit-driven style of punishment, developed on slavery's frontier, became a template for the nation in a post–civil rights era. And the state today remains for many a bellwether—not only in the realm of incarceration and penal policy, but also in the larger worlds of politics, demographic change, and culture." The panel included staffers from the Texas Criminal Justice Coalition, The Sentencing Project and OSI's Criminal Justice Fund. [LINK] Posted by Linda Frye Burnham
