"Prisoner-to-Public Communication"

The title of this post is the title of this recent article just posted to SSRN authored by Demetria Frank.  Here is its abstract:

The pervasive problem of over-incarceration in the United States is in part due to lack of correctional facility accountability to the public, and public lack of access to the prisoner experience. In light of the incessant persistence of over-incarceration and “hands off approach” taken by courts in prison administration, this article proposes an unqualified and unfettered prisoner-to-public communication right that would provide prison accountability to the public.
