*listen to PAVEMENT POD CAST HERE
I met Carlos a while back and did a story about him in the LA Weekly. The piece was about the systematic abuse of minority kids in low income areas by law enforcement. The through-line was that cops are shaping young minds as anti social and potentially criminal by employing a systematic, institutionalized abuse. All paid for by taxes by tax dollars and aimed and breeding the next crop of neo-slaves for the Prison Industrial Complex.
excerpt — Carlos is going to prison. He’s always been going to prison. Whether it’s this time or the next, his future is preordained. The circumstances of his life crushed him into a brown diamond that fits perfectly into a cell.
