New Post! Prison Hurts All of Wisconsin
“Despite many cultural differences, Wisconsin’s prison system has a similar negative impact on people in both under-resourced rural communities and Milwaukee’s northside. Those who have been cut out of the jobs economy, who’ve been marginalized and neglected by political elites, business owners, and corporations, are more likely to struggle with addiction, despair, and violence. We know what comes next...”
"Co-creating literature with imprisoned revolutionaries is also an invaluable way to sharpen one’s own group analysis, as the nonimprisoned revolutionary can never fully comprehend the changing politics of power in plantation society without listening in to the pulse of the movement for Prisoner Liberation."
So basically the lady writing racist articles online "accidentally," discharged her service weapon at an unarmed black kid that was driving away. A few things; why would you fire a taser at a car? That would be pointless, so that about sums up why this defense is bullshit and it was never meant to be her taser. Furthermore this is not the first time this cop that is the head of the police union has shot somebody that didn't need to be shot. But don't worry the police force is investigating.

Stimulus Obstruction in Wisconsin Prisons
“this is a particularly cruel act on the part of the IRS, who in collaboration with the DOC has made the stimulus program a nightmare for prisoners”
as described by a friend who’s held captive there:
“we are being put at serious risk over NON serious issues. having too much allowed property is not a threat to the safety or security of the prison. in all the years I've been incarcerated I've never heard of a major unit shakedown to ensure inmates didn't have too much allowed property, especially at a time like this.”
Shakedowns and grouping prisoners into common spaces (enabling further spread of COVID) at Racine Correctional are taking place.
This all comes down to a recent decision to reduce the amount of personal property each prisoner is allowed.
A similar memo just went out at Oshkosh CI, how long till we see jumps in the numbers of people who test positive?
These actions from the DOC are in direct opposition to a DAI policy regarding social distancing.
Sad Tony Evers and the Proposed Budget that Can’t

The Psychology of the Prison Guard
"Hearing their conversations, I witness first hand what the caste system of 'white and black' has truly done to those who believe in 'whiteness' as a power, a God-given right to dominate. It also allows me to see the fear associated in their perceptions, and the evilness that it brings out of them."
