in justice: The individual effect of mass incarceration | creatavist Salomao Montiero Junior thought it would be a Friday night like any other, partying at a friend’s house in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. Salomao had never been in a gang and never owned a gun. He grew up on the nicer side of Providence’s East Side, attended Catholic school for eight years, and had a stable job working in a metal factor. But by midnight that night, a twenty five year old man lay dead in the street, and Salomao Junior was about to be sentenced to twenty-years in jail. When Salomao entered Rhode Island’s Adult Correctional Facility in 1992, he was one of more than a million people in the United States serving time in America’s prison system. Today, America incarcerates more of its citizens for longer periods of time than any other nation. “In Justice” investigative reporter Christina Goldbaum explores America’s incarceration culture, asking the question: does mass incarceration work?
