Journalist Shaun King posted this accompanying comment on Facebook:
If I wrote what this man said in a bad script, you’d say I was overdoing it. Steve Prattor is the sheriff of Caddo Parish Louisiana. Here he says how upset he is that new programs are releasing the “good” black men from jail who wash his car, mow the yards, and cook in the kitchen. It’s about as honest as it gets.
Yeah. America. 2017.
Note that Sheriff Prattor wants to keep the “good” prisoners. Our Constitution makes it legal to force convicts to work for no wage; it is the driving force behind criminalizing homelessness, mandatory sentences, infrequent parole hearings, and much more … anything and everything that will keep “good” people enslaved.
