Did you know incarcerated people are assessed all sorts of fees? I had never thought about it, especially what that means for the poor in prison.

From the tagged book in the Mar 1/8 edition of #TimeMagazine. Miller —a University of Chicago professor— uses a collect call from his incarcerated brother as way to illustrate some of the inequities in the incarceration system.

JenReadsAlot I've worked as a therapist in corrections for years and it is ridiculous... 2y
squirrelbrain I read this article too the other day and was also shocked by all of the different inequalities suffered when people leave the prison system. 2y
megnews I recently learned about this in a social work course. What‘s even worse is in many jurisdictions people are charged daily fees when they are in jail held on bond before they‘ve even been convicted of a crime. So even if their case doesn‘t go forward they may later be picked up after a traffic stop for a warrant for nonpayment of the fees. It is a bunch of crap and just a way to make money off poor people. 2y

PurpleTulipGirl People can land in jail for the simple cause of not being able to pay a fine of a couple hundred dollars. It‘s ridiculous, and it‘s shameful. 2y
Jennifer3 I am so glad this kind of information is getting out there! I am a social worker for a Public Defender office and although I understand my clients have committed some serious crimes and others not so serious, the jail and prison system can be very expensive foe the indigent or they go without because they don‘t have a family with resources to put money on their phone or their account. Sometimes they even have to pay co-pays to see a doctor or 2y
Jennifer3 to seek mental health treatment. I have seen some reform in my almost 18 years but we have a long way to go. 2y
kspenmoll Yes. I n Ct you can be charged room & board for the duration of your prison stay once you are out. Its NUTs! 1y

#Thankfulforbooksswap @JamieLou @Elma

Both the #TimeMagazine blurb and the rest included quote of #MauriceSendak are evocative and intriguing to say the least and seem to touch upon the same themes. I know this is gonna be a good read!

Also, a nice #synchronicity as well: the #MauriceSendak quote is on #September #27th which happens to be my daughter's birthday. 😁🙏

ShelleyBooksie Look forward to your review. 4y

Zelma Heh, it looks like most of us are doing the same thing this morning - lazing around, reading, drinking coffee or tea. 👍 5y

Of course the #HarryPotter nerd that I am, when I learned #TimeMagazine had a #specialedition dedicated to HP, I went straight to #Amazon & bought it. #HarryPotter20

ScorpioBookDreams Is this worth buying? I've been tempted but held out so far! 5y
MyNamesParadise @ScorpioBookDreams I haven't read it yet but flipped through it and liked what I saw! I'm a sucker for things like this so to me, it is, but it may not be for everyone! I kept a scholastic little magazine from elementary school that was about HP and that was in the late 90s so when it comes to HP I tend to go all out ☺️ 5y
EmeraldSorceress Probably the only magazine I ever will read 😆 4y
