Description

Moderated by Ted Gest, Criminal Justice Journalists

Despite falling crime rates, the U.S. remains one of the world’s incarceration leaders, with more than 2 million people in prisons and jails. Unless there’s a riot or an escape, the media tend to ignore this problem. Hear from journalists and an outside expert about the leading issues, including overcrowding, poor inmate health care, private prisons, solitary confinement, mental illness behind bars, and whether efforts by California and other states to reduce corrections populations are succeeding.
