“Restorative Justice” – a “Must Read” article in the LA Times


The LA Times has an article I highly recomend everone read. Then ponder for awhile. Then re-read. Then…

Essentially, an article on a program happening in some prisons in California (and elsewhere) working with prisoners to redesign all aspects of the justice system- from courts to prisons, to mae the criminal justice system work. To provide healing and growth- for victims and perpetrators.

Well, best if you read it yourself. And form your own thoughts. So here it is: GREAT READ: WHAT KIND OF PRISON MIGHT THE INMATES DESIGN?

About drugsandotherthings

I am a criminal. Because I have used cannabis and psychedelics extensively. I have tried many other drugs, but never cared for the uppers, downers, or dissociatives. I love craft beer, and absinthe, but don't care much for alcohols effects- which quite frankly, are boring and dangerous. Science is my religion. I am in my 40's, and have travelled extensively. And often forced myself outside of my confort zone. I am employed, a respected member of my communtiy, an animal lover, an environmentalist, a political junkie, and the realities I have experienced continue to push me further to the left of the political spectrum.

    Thanks for sharing this. I just started “The New Jim Crow” which discusses the higher percent of incarceration of African-Americans versus other groups coupled with the vast numbers of incarcerated people in the US versus other countries. This restorative justice concept is very compelling and will set people on a better path. BTG
