“… we have a collect-call system through which criminals support the cost of incarceration instead of taxpayers.”
“A collect-call system? Isn’t that the families paying for the calls?”
“Families, criminals – it’s the same thing.”
Bernstein 2005: 87
“Putting bars between a woman and her children may be enough to make her think about how she has hurt them, but if you offer her no means of making things better, that painful realization can lead right back to drugs.”
Bernstein 2005: 245
“Think about how central being a parent is to our lives, how it motivates us, causes us to act one way or another. To presume to motivate prisoners towards changing their lives and not include in the calculus their relationship with their children is bizarre.”
