She wore the moniker “felon” as she walked up the steps to her halfway house. It was on the outskirts of her former neighborhood. She now had no right to vote. No right to decent employment. No protection from usurious fines. She wasn’t a citizen anymore; she was a leper. Subjugated by the criminal justice industrial system, she was going to be segregated again by her neighbors. I wish to change this.
