I saw one of the docs this past weekend. Gosh, can't believe that even 10 years later, things aren't back to where they used to be. Great film.

Everyone should be allowed to vote, regardless of color, education, ethnicity, or prior inmate.  All prior inmates should be allowed to vote because their voices matter.
Maybe they could help us clean up this infested, stinking judicial system of ours.
Their input should matter!  They can talk about the inhumane treatment of inmates that are locked up.
They can talk about the expired food, thin mattresses, poor nutrituous food that is served, and lack of medical care.
Some of the people that work in these prisons, need to be locked up behind prison wallls themselves, becuase of the inhumane treatment.
