Not The Onion – Ivy League Students Push To Abolish Prisons


Authored by Celine Ryan via Campus Reform,

Students at Brown University gathered in November to teach their peers about the merits of doing away with the U.S. prison system.

A student group by the name of RailRoad held the event titled “Prison Abolition 101” on Nov. 8. The group seeks to ensure that the American prison system is “destroyed” and believes that incarceration is inherently unjust and unproductive.

RailRoad member Grace Austin stated during the event that “the end goal is to not have prisons as any form of incarceration,” and that “punishment at any stage doesn’t guarantee any kind of growth,” according to a report by The Brown Daily Herald.

The student group’s stated mission is to create a “world where the Prison Industrial Complex in all of its forms has been destroyed and built in its place are systems of accountability that allow for healing and growth.”

“Prisons were founded in the ideas of punishing the poor, punishing people of color,” presenter Aida Sherif said, adding “I don’t see it as an institution that can ever fully break away from those foundations.”

“Our society is constructed in a way that would have us believe prisons are absolutely necessary,” Sherif said.

“People perceive it as crazy, unreasonable, dangerous, too radical. Abolition is not anarchy.

The event reportedly did not present concrete plans or a timeline to achieve this “abolition,” but rather emphasized that the complete dismantling of the U.S. prison system was a realistic long term goal.

In October, Railroad presented a proposal calling upon the university to cease the consideration of criminal aspects such as conviction history in its hiring processes, and even to implement a quota of “formerly incarcerated community members.”

  1. These students from Ivy League schools, or should I say the Democratic Socialist Indoctrination centers, have NO clue. They live in a bubble, created by these institutions and then start spewing ridiculous claims.

    There are laws in this Country. I know Democrats like Hilary Clinton, Joe Biden and others think they are above the law. Or like Menendez in New Jersey, Dems will pull out a retired Dem judge and he will find a way to help the Dem in trouble OUT of trouble.

    But REAL people know you break the law there are consequences. And no rehabilitation in prison, gee they get to go to college, they get free representation, even illegals. And all on the taxpayers dime.

    There are harden criminals that let out in society will kill and destroy. There are illegals that break the law that need to GO BACK to where they came.

    President Trump has been working diligently on this. Shame these Ivy League socialists won’t actually look into that. It’s just NO PRISONS.

    Not only the Ivy League schools but Hollywood as well. And the actor and his wife got caught…lying

    “While working in a so-called “piece of shit country” — as the show’s writers like to put it — Macy makes $350,000 per episode of Shameless, according to a report by Variety.

    In March, Macy was able to avoid charges involving the infamous college admissions scandal, despite being in the same room when his wife, Felicity Huffman first heard the pitch from a scam insider, according to an FBI affidavit.

    While the actor was able to dodge indictment — allowing him to get back to memorizing his character’s lines in the new Shameless script without any further duress — Huffman, on the other hand, was not as lucky, as she received a 14-day prison sentence for her role in the bribery scandal.”

    So this actor gets to make his money and bash OUR Country while doing it and makes his wife go to jail because they bribe a college to get their children in. lol


    • One last note. this actor and Hollywood calls Our Country a sh$thole. But remember, how upset the liberals were when President Trump said the intercities were? Well they are, created by dumb liberals, stupid Ivy league graduates and Hollywood with their socialist ways. Wow, what a bunch of hollywood hypocrites.
