"No Prisoner Left Behind? Enhancing Public Transparency of Penal Institutions"

The title of this post is the title of this intriguing looking new paper by Andrea Armstrong available via SSRN. Here is the abstract:

Prisoners suffer life-long debilitating effects of their incarceration, making them a subordinated class of people for life.  This article examines how prison conditions facilitate subordination and concludes that enhancing transparency is the first step towards equality. Anti-subordination efforts led to enhanced transparency in schools, a similar but not identical institution.  This article argues that federal school transparency measures provide a rudimentary and balanced framework for enhancing prison transparency.

The opposite is true. There is a duty to totally resist the oppression of the pro-criminal lawyer traitor to our nation. Transparency is lawyer code for self-criticism. That makes it much easier for the lawyer traitor to destroy the power of an institution competing for power with the lawyer profession. Stalin suggested self criticism to the press. The press admitted many wrongdoings. Stalin then arrested reporters and had them shot based on their self criticism. The Inquisition used confession the same way.

For example, there is no legal recourse for an ultra-violent protege of the vile lawyer traitor. He is attacking prisoners, guards, and visitors with absolute immunity from the vile lawyer traitor on the bench. With a guard, looking away, this ultra-aggressive predator takes a tumble, head first on metal steps. Dies. Everyone is better off. The investigation is highly superficial, and finds he had an accident. Why on earth would prison authorities deliver the prisoner that did everyone a favor by murdering this lunatic client of the lawyer traitor? This Good Samaritan should have a stonewall of protection and resistance from prison authorities against outside prosecutors and judges who inflicted the super predator on them.

Prison is the result of the "life-long debilitating effects" of being a feral child and their drug use.

They were broken people long before they went through the sally port.
