Human Zoos

Found : Human Zoos

As has been well-documented on this site, America imprisons more people than any other nation. The state takes away inmates' liberty, controlling every moment of their lives, and locking them up in cages. For some reason, we've forgotten that maybe, just maybe, throwing hundreds of thousands of violent people together in an enclosed environment might not be a good idea. We wonder why there is a whole prison subculture of rape, theft, murder, and bribery; in short, why inmates act like animals. Because we treat them like animals. Instead of treating people who commit crimes against others like people, even when that might grate against our modern sensibilities, we stand by and approve of the state rounding up the cattle and robbing them of their humanity by dumping them in the Naughty Zoo.
