"What’s hidden behind the walls of America’s prisons" - The Conversation. 06/04/2017.

In this opinion piece, Heather Ann Thompson says that American citizens' lack of access to information on what goes on in prisons is bad for the prisoners, for guards, and for the public itself. She says: "Throughout American history unspeakable abuse of men and women has been allowed to happen behind prison walls because the public had no access."
