The incarcerated are members of our community too. They're certainly not safer in jail and prison than they would be outside. Communities as a whole are also weaker because of mass incarceration.

The criminal punishment system is the same as it always was: a racist, classist, ablist mechanism of social control. This is what Biden represents.
