Need for Prison Progress
In this program, Wright and criminologist Joseph D. Lohman review the historical progress of dragging our penal institutions out of the nineteenth century, with changes often following riots and political exposes. Films scenes review the wasteful and harmful practices in prison administration that result from public apathy. An inmate presents his view of lack of progress and need for change. Wright and Lohman conclude by noting that violent upheavals must not be the way to stimulate progress; penal institutions are part of the social fabric, and the public must be aware of proper procedures.
