Prisoners Count

program: 
Prison Pipeline
program date: 
Sun, 03/15/2009

Another segment from Democracy Now! March 3, 2009, Amy’s guests brought attention to a Census taking device that should concern us all. Districts in many states count the prisoners of the local penitentiary in their census and thus become eligible for the same budget and political benefits as a district that does not have a prison. In some cases the prison population is as much as 88 per cent of the Census count.
