    (Read) [Mr Smith Goes to Prison] Jeff you are a truly inspiring individual You take responsibility for your actions I think those charges were ridiculous and somehow manage to not just survive prison but claim to be a better person for it and undertake the prison system as a cause It's all very impressive Maine doesn't send nearly as many people to prison as other states do probably because the population is so old but it is still depressing to think about how prison is j

It actually didn t take me as long to finish the book as it looks I just wanted to read the epilogue and acknowledgements and give it my full attention This book sucks you in from the get go and takes you on a surprising trip from the trenches of grassroots state and local urban politics to the cold hopeless reality of a federal penitentiary I ll admit I chose to read this book because I work with Jeff and had followed his uick political rise and fall over social media and local news but I think readers who have no prior knowledge of him and his career would be eually enthralled Given the growing attention in our country on the incredible problems with mass incarceration primarily of black males this book offers an often frustrating view of life behind bars And not just of life but of the unbalanced manner in which individuals find themselves there via our courts system Sprinkled throughout Smith offers practical solutions to problems with incarceration both large and small both costly and free both easily implemented and reuiring of major political and legal reform So while the story of the individuals can feel hopeless the book does offer some hope that change is possible and the vast waste of human capital behind bars and taxpayer resources to boot could perhaps be tamed One criticism is that the book does not offer much in the way of discussion regarding the victims of the criminals who are behind bars and there was an allusion I couldn t forget a brief mention of the fact that some men in the federal prison Jeff was sentenced to may be serving time for non violent offensesbut of their own admission or allusion to fellow prisoners they simply hadn t been caught committing dangerous or violent crimes I understand the importance of the book s focus on justice reform and putting the correction back into the correctional facility but I do think that the most vocal critics to any real reform would take the angle of victim s advocate sincere or uite possibly not which is a tough one to fightThat said this was an eye opening page turning tale that I certainly won t forget and which will encourage me to do in my own life and career to fight for programs that assist former inmates in regaining some sense of their humanity opportunity and optimism after they serve their time Or perhaps even in lieu of time behind bars and rather in a productive and rehabilitative manner that would truly benefit society families and individuals who may otherwise be forgotten or brushed aside as hopeless cases
