    Criminal InJustice Kos is a weekly series devoted to exploring the myths of "crime", "criminals", and criminal justice and the intersection of race/ethnicity/class/gender/sexuality/
    age/disability in policing and punishment.

    Criminal Injustice Kos is committed to furthering action towards reducing inequity in the US criminal justice system.

    Look for Criminal InJustice Kos every Wednesday at 6 pm CST

    Thank you for being here, for reading. Criminal Injustice Kos appeals to all who participate in the discussion here to discuss and debate respectfully - and for all of us to work together to reject the idea that justice and safety for one group must necessarily come at the expense of someone else.

    CIK recognizes that many of us who care profoundly about state violence in the criminal legal/punishment system have also been victims of violence – sometimes as prisoners and sometimes in the larger society.  Many of us know others – family members, friends, neighbors, co-workers - who have experienced violence inside or outside of penal institutions. We believe that all suffering matters, whether the violence comes at the hands of individuals or small groups acting alone - or at the hands of the state and its officials.

    As we share information and opinion about the issues discussed here, we should also feel free to share relevant personal experiences.  CIK asks only that we do so out of respect for one another and our varying experiences. Real justice is never a zero sum game, and as we work to end violence and create safety, we do so recognizing the need to address all forms of violence that intersect in the criminal legal/punishment system.

    Every Wednesday (and sometimes Saturday) at 6pm CST
