"It begins in the house," that the 62-year-old responded when asked for his ideas about the prison-industrial complicated - a phrase that refers to the attribution of this rapid growth of their US inmate population into the political sway of private prison companies and companies that provide services and products to authorities prison bureaus for gain.
His remarks are out of action with actors like the rapper, JAY-Z, and celebrity Frequent, and manager Ava DuVernay, just how much organizations are profiting from it and whose landmark 13th investigates the roots of incarceration of both African-Americans.
"The specifics of Meek's case inspired me to write this," he wrote. "But it's time we highlight the random ways people trapped in the criminal justice system are punished every day. The system treats them as a danger to society, consistently monitors and follows them for any minor infraction - with the goal of putting them back in prison..."
"Probation is a trap and we must fight for Meek and everyone else unjustly sent to prison," he added.
Denzel Washington won't put any blame for the mass incarceration of black women and men in the united states on "the machine".
JAY-Z also recently wrote an opinion article from the New York Times regarding criminal justice reform at the U.S. in service of fellow rapper Meek Mill, who had been detained for a probation violation stemming from a 2008 gun and drug bust.
"So that you understand I can not blame the machine," he continued. "It is unfortunate that we make such simple job for them."
If pushed to expand in his response, the father-of-four clarified: "It begins with the way you raise your kids. When a young guy does not possess a father figure, then he will go find a father figure."
