From the Editor

On March 20, 2009, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency gave Prison Profiteers: Who Makes Money from Mass Incarceration, the third PLN anthology on mass imprisonment its respected PASS (Prevention for a Safer Society) Award. The purpose of the award is to honor the role of the media in informing the public on the root causes of crime and methods to protect youth and citizens from involvement in crime. I would like to thank both the NCCD and all the contributors to Prison Profiteers for the award. The book is available from Prison Legal News.

On the topic of books, the latest edition of Protecting Your Health and Safety, published by the Southern Poverty law Center and exclusively distributed by PLN is also now available. The book is an excellent litigation how to book aimed at helping pro se prisoners successfully litigate medical, excessive force and failure to protect claims.

This editorial will be brief because we have a lot of news to report this month. Enjoy this issue of PLN and encourage others to subscribe.
