Angela Davis, Nas discuss abolishing prisons (Useful Idiot Alert!)
WFMZ ^

Posted on 03/14/2014 2:47:35 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Imagine there are no prisons; it may be hard to do.

Yet that is exactly what social activist Angela Davis challenged an audience of about 725 people to do Monday night at Lehigh University in Bethlehem.

The program’s topic was “Mass Incarceration: The Prison Industrial Complex.”

****

She also is the author of eight books, including “Are Prisons Obsolete?” and a founding member of Critical Resistance, a national organization dedicated to the dismantling of the prison industrial complex by “challenging the belief that caging and controlling people makes us safe.”

I have a suggestion. Let's try her example by closing one prison.....and mandating that all of the prisoners be put into her zip code.

How about exiling them to remote islands in shark infested waters?

I didn’t say they should all be killed, just exiled where they can’t escape. They can have basic food & housing. It would be a lot cheaper than prison

No prisons - pay fine, stand in public stocks, or death.

No...they have re-education camps. That’s where the convicts watch over innocent people.

Only violent criminals should be jailed.

What these people are going for is a system where anything goes. No property rights. Re-Distribution 24/7.

Unless you are white of course.......

“social activist”

This commie is much more than that. She is an outright POS. Should have been convicted for involvment in a jail break which ended up in a few deaths. Spent time in Cuba with a bunch of her bros like Huey Newton and Stokely Carmikeal. I am surprised his excellency has not appointed her to some post like attorney general in waiting.

Notice the article called her a “social activist” in the lead instead of a hard core COMMUNIST. Here are some examples of her social activism:

“She emerged as a nationally prominent counterculture activist and radical in the 1960s, as a leader of the Communist Party USA....She was twice a candidate for Vice President on the Communist Party USA ticket during the 1980s.

On August 7, 1970, Jonathan Jackson, a heavily armed 17-year-old African-American high-school student, gained control over a courtroom in Marin County, California. Once in the courtroom, Jackson armed the black defendants and took Judge Harold Haley, the prosecutor, and three female jurors as hostages.[17][18] As Jackson transported the hostages and two black convicts away from the courtroom, the police began shooting at the vehicle. The judge and the three black men were killed in the melee; one of the jurors and the prosecutor were injured.

Davis had purchased the firearms used in the attack, including the shotgun used to kill Haley, which had been bought two days prior and the barrel sawed off.[18] Since California considers “all persons concerned in the commission of a crime, whether they directly commit the act constituting the offense... principals in any crime so committed,”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angela_Davis

She was found not guilty later in an OJ type trial.

She’s trying to pave the way for her future career as a “prisoner”. No jails, no prison needed.

Useful idiot for certain.

We need prisons but the prison system as we know it could use some correcting.

Too often we send people to prison only to see them emerge years later worse than they were when we sent them there. Years of GenPop exposes them to the worst of humanity where they either must plumb new depths of depravity to survive and/or learn new depths of negative behavior. We too often wind up creating new monsters while trying to punish the ones we fear most.

I don’t know what the answer is. But, the current system is far, far from ideal,

Agree. And I would also decriminalize some drugs. If you want to do drugs, you should be free to poison your own body.

Prohibition did not work, and neither will the war on drugs, no matter how much money is spent.

You are correct, she is a POS. She should have been fried in Cal in 70. Spent time in Cuba with Huey Newton and Stokley Carmickael I believe. She is an avowed commie and a prominent official in the anti “white society” movement. Her anti incarceration activities are a ruse. Another of the social justice types; their thoughts alone are anathma to our society.

I am only surprised that his excellency has not appointed her to some position in the DOJ, perhaps attorney general in waiting.

The sad part is that she was apparently well received at Lehigh University, allegedly a respectable institution.
