People often ask what we would do about rapists and murderers without prisons. But as Dean Spade puts it, “The prison is the serial killer; the prison is the serial rapist.” Prisons produce conditions where rape and premature death are rampant, even inevitable. Prisons grant guards total power over prisoners, so that they can intimidate and threaten inmates who dare to report rape. They lock inmates in cramped conditions where they are vulnerable to violence and heat death, and lack access to healthcare. Mass incarceration means mass violence.
