Algunos apuntes del fin de semana

– criminal justice as a racialized system of control
– the domestic war on crime is part of the global wars on drugs and on terror
– the prison industrial complex and other technologies of domination which: capture, immobilize, dehumanize, liquidate
– the system must be uprooted, not reformed
– email
– the criminal code as the line of demarcation between the public and the state (the state being those who have the power to define crime, to say what is a crime and what a crime is)
– a film with Christine Lahti involving a Mexican janitor and a high school principal
– professors giving out standard advice: “This is what a pretend life looks like, and if you are not living a pretend life, then your life is not real.”
– that last line is brilliant and not original to me
– this is a modern American poem
