The politics of punishment is today’s topic. The "tough on crime" ethos that entered American public policy during the Reagan years still reverberates through certain American communities.

Billions of dollars more have been spent since to support the incarceration of millions of Americans.

My guest today argues that the impact of these policies touch more than just the person who is convicted of a crime.

Khalilah Brown-Dean is associate professor of political science at Quinnipiac University. Her next book is titled Once Convicted, Forever Doomed and examines the impact of the criminal justice system on African American and Latino communities.
