(american incarcerations are mostly nonviolent drug offenders)

army field manual ar-210-35:

This rapid action revision dated 14 January 2005 - Assigns responsibilities to Headquarters, Installation Management Agency (para 1-4j). Makes administrative and editorial changes (throughout). This new regulation dated 9 December 1997 - Provides Army policy and guidance for establishing civilian inmate labor programs and civilian prison camps on Army installations. - Discusses sources of Federal and State civilian inmate labor.

Chapter 1 Introduction 1–1. Purpose This regulation provides Army policy and guidance for establishing civilian inmate labor programs and civilian prison camps on Army installations. Sources of civilian inmate labor are limited to on– and off–post Federal corrections facilities, State and/or local corrections facilities operating from on–post prison camps pursuant to leases under Section 2667, Title 10, United States Code (10 USC 2667), and off–post State corrections facilities participating in the demonstration project authorized under Section 1065, Public Law (PL) 103–337.

2–1. Policy statement a. With a few exceptions, the Army’s Civilian Inmate Labor Program is currently limited to using inmates from facilities under the control of the Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBOP). Section 4125(a), Title 18, United States Code allows the Attorney General to make available to other Federal agencies the services of Federal inmates and defines the types of services inmates can perform. The FBOP provides civilian inmate labor free of charge to the Army. b. The Army is not interested in, nor can afford, any relationship with a corrections facility if that relationship stipulates payment for civilian inmate labor. Installation civilian inmate labor program operating costs must not exceed the cost avoidance generated from using inmate labor (see para 4–3 for a discussion of cost avoidance).

4–2. Media coverage Any media coverage involving inmates participating in the Civilian Inmate Labor Program, or involving onpost civilian inmate prison camps, will be reported through command channels to HQ, IMA (SFIMPL), and HQDA, Office of the Chief of Public Affairs, Public Communications Division (SAPA–PCD). Report media source (newspaper, magazine, radio, television), name of media source (and radio and/or television channel), date of coverage, synopsis of report, and whether the report had local, regional, or national coverage. Provide copies of the article and/or script, if available.

reflections on having made people walk out of my screening, particularily the mother with her daughter..

fuck it catholicism is a
religion christianity is facism.

"i am a christian" is as
descriptive as "i am a semite."

the christian right looks a lot like
fascism if one substitutes love of an
abstract christian god with love of the
abstract notion of statehood.

ideological eugenics.

economies of abstract
binary truth values.

why i'm an anarchist...

advertising desensitizes
populations to deception.

what was it about
the ideological suicides
of our bourgeois saints,

a public service announcement

not to suggest
we ought not
fear the chicken

no for ought
not the chicken
fear the man?
