The Boiling Point: "Cruel and Unusual" (Picture 268 of 277)

Cruel and Unusual Inspired by an article my friend Marlo sent me about Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson, who has decided to charge prisoners rent for his inhumanely run jails (known for suicides and riots).

For more information on prison issues, check out this special report from Mother Jones magazine, which includes a state-by-state incarceration atlas comparing how much states spend on education (not too much, generally) with how much they spend on locking people up (a lot, generally).
