Dawn has learned first hand of the arbitrary nature and lack of due process inside the prison walls. She isn't afraid to speak out about the injustices her husband faces behind bars.
Emily Aspinwall, Stark Raven Media Collective
(interview is self contained with an intro and extro)

Our society sends people to prison for breaking laws. These are rules we are told to follow in order to ensure the effective, respectful functioning of our society.

There does seem to be an irony to the fact that the very institution where we send lawbreakers, is often devoid of the rule of law.

Dawn is one woman who has experienced this. She has seen her husband through several years in the federal prison system. They have both been dealing with the bureaucracy and arbitrary-ness behind the walls.

Dawn is currently supporting her husband in fighting a recent transfer to maximum security. One he says is unjustified and based on that very arbitrariness.

Stark Raven speaks with Dawn about her husband’s struggles with the prison bureaucracy.
