I wanted to share with this audience a brief video by investigative journalist Will Potter on the secret US Prisons you’ve probably never heard about, and they exist inside current US prisons on US soil. Potter is the only reporter who has been inside a Communications Management Unit, or CMU, within a US prison. These units were opened secretly, and radically alter how prisoners are treated — even preventing them from hugging their children. Potter, a TED Fellow, shows us who is imprisoned here, and how the government is trying to keep them hidden. “The message was clear,” he says. “Don’t talk about this place.”
As you listen, try to be objective and keep your eye on the ball as to what the real issue is, and that is not whether someone is Muslim or an environmentalist or guilty or not guilty. The issue is that these CMUs, or as prison guards refer to them as “little Gitmos,” are set up unlawfully and no one knows who is actually making the rules or what is going on fully inside these facilities.
This should concern every single American as the prisons are not a for-profit business and new “laws” are being written every day that could deem you to be a criminal.
With that in mind, here’s Will Potter.
