Day 74: A World Without Prisons

More and more, I’ve been thinking about what a world without cops or prisons would look like. I’m so used to seeing them, having them be part of the community, that it’s truly hard to imagine. The idea of police and prisons are so ingrained in our culture that we think they are an absolute necessity. I’m no longer convinced that’s true. 

While I’m not convinced of their necessity, it’s still hard for me to imagine what society would look like without them. To be honest, the thought of it still scares me. It’s such a great unknown and the unknown is scary. 

There are still a lot of questions that need to be answered before we even think of getting to that point. Do I have the answers? No. Hell, I don’t even know all of the questions. I do know that something needs to be done, and soon.
