A Voice from Prison Blog | Criminal Justice Reform & Constitutional Rights

A Voice From Prison is a nonprofit organization advocating for criminal justice reform and constitutional rights. We came about when our founder was first inside the prison walls but soon expanded outwards to involve the entire community by raising awareness of what it means to administer justice in the United States.

Being imprisoned for many years away from the public eye is vastly different than it appears in pop culture media. We are the voice for those who don’t always get heard. Our blog provides you with all of the information you need to know. Including facts and insights from things you wouldn’t believe are true!

A Voice From Prison aims to promote policy change and educate people about the reality of life behind bars. We do this by providing evidence based research materials and services for people who are currently or have been involved in the prison system, as well as the general public at large.

What happens when our justice system doesn't get it right?

Sometimes, it takes a brave individual on the inside to reveal the true failings of a system from within.
Americans go to sleep every night, unaware of even committing a crime. The number of things made illegal are staggering. Almost anyone qualifies to be found guilty of a felony, for matters as simple as not revealing your true identity on social media.
Investments in crime prevention comes at a cost - which must be justified often with putting potential criminals behind bars, even when many did not even desire to commit a crime in the first place.
Separation of powers was an element of why this very country was founded. However, those protections are basically non-existent within the criminal justice system.
Too often, real crimes go unpunished or are sidestepped.
Voice has higher incarceration rates than crimes which truly have victims.
Recidivism rates are higher then ever. Even with increased spending and higher incrassation rates, the system is failing in is objectives.
The US criminal justice system clearly isn't working.
Maintaining our Constitutional rights is a big deal - by the time you cross paths with the criminal justice system, it is already too late.
Conflict of interest in the criminal justice system? The US Justice Department oversees prosecution of crimes, how criminal laws are interpreted, authority over convicted individuals in the BOP, and even who receives pardons.
Preventive measures - we are addressing the wrong things. Stop crime before it happens. Address the root cause.
The criminal justice system doesn't always house criminals. Often, many individuals never intended to commit a crime.
Power is taken away from judges and given to prosecutors. The common law which has been formed in the last 100 years is written more often than not by the very people prosecuting crimes, and not by judges in courtrooms or our legislation.
