  • False Confessions
    Sometimes, the suspect wants to protect someone else. But sometimes, there are physically or psychologically coerced plea bargains by the prosecutor's piling on of charges that would result in a much longer sentence or even the death penalty.

  • (Junk) Science & Destroyed Evidence
    Junk science plays a bigger role in wrongful convictions than we might believe. Exculpatory evidence is often withheld or even destroyed, although the Courts order otherwise. => See "Immunity"!

  • Jurors - the Role of the Jury
    Jurors only can consider what they observe and hear in the court room. When exculpatory evidence is withheld from jurors, man-made justice fails. Jurors are human, untrained and often laymen. They make mistakes.

  • Mistaken Eyewitness Identification
    People often describe having seen what they expected to see, rather than what they actually saw. When witnesses have experienced trauma, such as being victims in a crime, they generally perceive the perpetrator to be taller and bulkier than he or she actually is. Without the traumatic situtation present, most people will take little note of the facial characteristics of someone presenting himself for something as ordinary as directions.

  • Snitches/ Informants, Perjury, Misconduct & Corruption
    "Snitches" are those in jail and prison, who sell you out. "Snitches"/ Informants/ Co-defendants (state witnesses) are allowed to testify in court and make "deals" with the prosecutor. Can deals serve justice, or is it just about convicting anybody?

  • Death Penalty
    Why does it still exist? What sense does it make to kill an alleged "killer"? It is said taxpayers pay around US $ 2 million or more for each death row inmate until s/he is executed. Let's analyze WHO does profit, and therefore WHOSE interest it is to maintain the death penalty machinery!

  • Drug War
    Is the drug war a homemade problem? What would happen, if "drugs" were legalized? Why are addicts attracted to drugs? What sense does it make to prohibite drugs? Are drug addicts crying for help? Why are they put in prison? What about proper rehabilitation? Do the government and the pharmaceutical industry benefit from this drug war?

  • (Mental) Health Care
    Mental health or health care in general behind bars. Retarded people do not belong in prison. What effect does prison have on an inmate's body and soul?

  • Prisons
    Let's gather information on different prisons. Make sure you mention the name of the facility, city, state, zip (and country, if other than USA) in the subject line. Before you start a new topic, check if "your" prison is listed here already, please.

  • In Memory
    Prison death for medical neglect, suicide, murder or institutional lynching (state execution). This forum reminds us of those, who became victims of injustice behind prison walls.

  • Prison Gangs & Slang & Tatoos
    Different races, different hometowns, different gangs. The strongest is the boss. You are nothing unless you earn respect.....Once in prison you need to find out how to survive. Soon you learn, you cannot trust anyone.

    This forum is for constructive input from inmates who are not among those innocent or "not-guilty" prisoners in the Inmates section. Please, post essays on the system or related issues. Do NOT fill this forum with personal requests. Thank you.

  • Women & Children in Prison
    Most of all inmates are male. This forum is about women and kids behind bars. Rape, pregnancy and abortion in women prisons. This is a place to bring this taboo to the public's attention.
