A group of prisoners at the South-Central Correctional Center in Licking MO have started a program called Resistance Against Prison Pipelines, also known as RAPP. On 2/17, Jaws of Justice Radio aired recorded interviews with two of them, Ozzie Collins and Derrick Peace. On February 24th, we will play Keith Brown El’s interview with the third inmate, Barry Holcomb. They are all three interested in reducing high incarceration rates. They believe our youth can be redirected from a life in prison.
