Real Talk: The Prison Industrial Complex
Today on Real Talk with Rashad Richey, our special guests Sheriff Richard Langford and Attorney Wayne Kendallstopped by to discuss the Prison Industrial Complex. The term Prison Industrial Complex is derived from the government using imprisonment as a solution for economic gain.
Richard Langford is the first elected African-American Sheriff in the state of Georgia, and Attorney Wayne Kendall has dealt with a multitude of legal policies that take place in Georgia. Both men spoke candidly about the Prison Industrial Complex’s effect on society, and how it can be considered to be modern day slavery.
