This week on Beyond the Veil, we will have a very special guest Collette Flanagan! She is the founder of the Dallas organization Mothers Against Police Brutality, or MAPB. She has been touched very personally by police brutality and it has sprung her into action to fight back. We will discuss her organization, as well as the growing problem with police brutality both in the Dallas area and nationally.
The United States contains 5% of the world population, and yet houses 25% of the worlds incarcerated. Because of this we will also be looking into the Prison Industrial Complex and the impacts it has had on society.
And lastly, we will also present to you the Leak of the Week, courtesy of WikiLeaks!
The term "prison-industrial complex" (PIC) is used to attribute the rapid expansion of the US inmate population to the political influence of private prison companies and businesses that supply goods and services to government prison agencies. The term is derived from the "military-industrial complex" of the 1950s. Such groups include corporations that contract prison labor, construction companies, surveillance technology vendors, lawyers, and lobby groups that represent them. Activists[who?] have argued that the prison-industrial complex is perpetuating a flawed belief that imprisonment is an effective solution to social problems such as homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy.
The term 'prison industrial complex' has been used to describe a similar issue in other countries' prisons of expanding populations.
The promotion of prison-building as a job creator and the use of inmate labor are also cited as elements of the prison-industrial complex. The term often implies a network of actors who are motivated by making profit rather than solely by punishing or rehabilitating criminals or reducing crime rates. Proponents of this view, including civil rights organizations such as The Rutherford Institute and the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), believe that the desire for monetary gain has led to the growth of the prison industry and the number of incarcerated individuals.
