Justice Roundtable member Nicole Porter of The Sentencing Project writes an article entitled, “Unfinished Project of Civil Rights in the Era of Mass Incarceration and the Movement for Black Lives,” in the Wake Forest University Law and Policy Journal.
“The American criminal justice system has been dominated by relentless growth for the last forty years.
“The culture of punishment, in part driven by political interests leveraging ‘tough on crime’ policies and practices marketed as the solution to the ‘fear of crime,’ has been implemented at every stage of the criminal justice process: arresting, charging, sentencing, imprisonment, releasing, and post-incarceration experiences in the era of mass incarceration.”
