Profiting Off Prisoners

Dealing with the problems created by the prison industry

Editor’s note : One of the goals of Werewolf is to do follow-up stories on subjects that we cover. In a previous issue, Werewolf contributor Rosalea Barker did an investigation of prison policy in California in a story entitled “This Door Swings Both Ways” that is available here.

The issues that Rosalea raised have not lost any of their relevance for New Zealand, as this recent coverage of the shortcomings of the private prison operator SERCO make clear.

Below, we have an infographic that summarises some of the shortcomings of the prison- industrial complex in the US. It is a direction that New Zealand should not be taking.
