Adam Gopnik The Caging Of America Analysis

Decent Essays
Adam Gopnik uses his article “The Caging of America” to illuminate the problems that plague America’s justice and prison systems.

I applaud the NYPD for reducing major crime without throwing everyone in prison, but Gopnik skips over an important facet of mass incarceration; recidivism.
