Hello Blog readers! My name is Diamond and I am a senior accounting major at the University of Maryland. I first became interested in topic of mass incarceration while watching Adam Ruins Everything [good things do come from YouTube procrastination]. On the show Adam debunks and reveals the hidden truth behind a variety of topics in a fun fashion. After watching the segment on private prisons I was appalled, but not surprised, at the manner in which this country treats its citizens. Since hearing of Trump’s administration plan to rescind Obama’s administration order to phase out the federal government use of private prison I’ve become very interested in this topic. I hope that this blog will encourage others to investigate and protest not only the private prison system in America but a multitude of other injustices that the government is serving to its “citizens”.
