Spring Rain in Danbury PDF Print E-mail

The population of Danbury FCI is about 65% Latina, another 25% African-American.  My guess is Hispanic populations in all prisons have increased massively in the last several years.  I read recently that the nature of our criminal justice system is no longer primarily concerned with the prevention & punishment of crime but "rather with the management & control of the dispossessed."

david"My own decision to clamber over the barbed-wire fence came out of a belief that the SOA is one embodiment of systemic violence and injustice that reaches at least as far back into history as the near extermination of Native Americans and enslavement of millions of Africans at the start of Europe's great expansion. Indications are more numerous each day that this system of global dominance, which prospers an elite minority at the expense of the poor masses, is enhancing in scope and consolidating power. The divide between the wealthy and the rest widens, while the world's most powerful nation - a slave to corporate power - continues to pursue an agenda of militarization and nuclear dominance, demonstrating utter disregard for the planet Earth and her less well-heeled inhabitants."

By: Nancy Smith

I am blessed to have the opportunity to be here & to know some extraordinary women.  Many have experienced unspeakable suffering in their lives, others have made devastating decisions; many face very long sentences with courage & determination, some are here for life without possibility of parole.  Many others will finish their term, go home, and repeat the same mistakes they made in the past.  Think of them often, bless them, hold them in your heart.  They have been very kind and generous to me, are indignant that I've been put in prison.  "An old lady - excuse me - like you!"  "Miss Nancy, you don't belong here!"
