Our society sends people to prison for breaking laws. These are rules we are told to follow in order to ensure the effective, respectful functioning of our society.
There does seem to be an irony to the fact that the very institution where we send lawbreakers, is often devoid of the rule of law.
Dawn is one woman who has experienced this. She has seen her husband through several years in the federal prison system. They have both been dealing with the bureaucracy and arbitrary-ness behind the walls.
Dawn is currently supporting her husband in fighting a recent transfer to maximum security. One he says is unjustified and based on that very arbitrariness.
Stark Raven speaks with Dawn about her husband’s struggles with the prison bureaucracy.
Thank you for reading this story...
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
