Vicky Osterweil joins the Beyond Prisons podcast to discuss her book, “In Defense Of Looting,” and the history of rioting and looting as direct action.
Our conversation addresses a number of issues relating to e-carceration including how it deprives people of their liberty, why electronic monitoring is not better than prison, and the use of surveillance technology in the time of COVID-19.
We discuss the fundamental issues with reform & the co-optation of abolitionist demands, how electronic monitoring denies people’s basic needs while shifting the costs of incarceration from the government onto the individual, why community policing is anti-community, and more.
Dr. Venezia Michalsen, an intersectional feminist criminologist, joins Kim Wilson to discuss gender and imprisonment, reentry, and the criminalization of women’s survival strategies.
