Kite Line- August 16, 2019: Not Better Than Jail

This post was originally published on this site

This week, we share a panel that took place last week in Indianapolis. As we heard last episode, Indiana Against E-Carceration has been organizing to educate the public about the issues surrounding electronic monitoring. They are struggling to prevent the grim possibility that sentencing and jail “reforms” set for 2020 will lead to an explosion of e-carceration, as surveillance paid for by prisoners turn homes and workplaces into the new prisons.  In this panel, we importantly hear first-hand accounts from people who’ve survived electronic monitoring and its accompanying cycles of re-incarceration, and learn more about the campaign against e-carceration.
