1/ “It is important to note, that the people languishing on probation, on the registry, in mandated outpatient treatment, in rescue programs and other forms of out of prison confinement are considered to be ‘in the community’” @MayaSchenwar @LVikkiml #read4justicewithamber
2/ “This refrain raises the question of what it means to be part of a community. In the vocabulary of the prison nation, being in community simply means occupying the same physical space as others.” - @MayaSchenwar @LVikkiml
3/ “But community has a deeper meaning, a sense of mutual care and responsibility & it is this meaning that disintegrates in the face of constant surveillance and restrictions.” - Prison by Any other Name @MayaSchenwar @LVikkiml #read4justicewithamber

1/ One of my favorite moments was when Aya passionately stated "This thought that there is this neat divide between 'the criminals' & 'the victims' was just never true as an empirical statistical matter." @ayagruber #endmassincarceration
2/ "The iconic 'victims' & 'perpetrators' that all of this massive amount of policy, massive expenditures of wealth in this country in caging people, the images that those were made on, were just racialized, class, gendered images. THEY. JUST. WEREN'T. TRUE." @ayagruber #cjreform

1/“Interestingly, some of the most ardent prison critics are not troubled by the carve-out to the mass incarceration critique for sexual misconduct...even though there is no such carve out for aggravated assault, drug dealing, or even murder.”-@ayagruber #endtheregistry #cjreform
2/ “The exception for sexual offenses is so taken for granted that few feel the need to mention it or stray from the presumption that sex offenders are just a small minority of those swept away in mass incarceration” - Feminist War on Crime @ayagruber #cjreform
3/ “Reality is that according to a BJS report on the US prison population is that so’s at 12.4%, constitute a higher percentage than burglars & nonsexual assaults & nearly as high a percentage as all drug offenders (15.7%)” Feminist War on Crime @ayagruber #read4justicewithamber

@ayagruber reflects - “How did the feminism anti-violence agenda become so tethered to the tough-on crime position? How come gender crime gets a carve out or even veto over #cjreform?...In many ways the feminist war on crime is a feminist civil war”#read4justicewithamber
2 / “It is natural to want to advocate for more crim. enforcement in the face of rape crisis stats & stories of abuser impunity. However, in the rush to punish bad apples we forget that the cj system is culturally ordered, technocratic & beholden to specific political forces.”
3/ @ayagruber unpacks how “Feminist criminal law reforms have always operated within the context of larger social phenomena, from slavery to sex panics.” Check out the Intro, Ch1 Ch 2 this week. Share your thoughts & RT to #read4justicewithamber
