ACLU AND HRW REPORT: REVOKED: HOW PROBATION AND PAROLE FEED MASS INCARCERATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Revoked: How Probation and Parole Feed Mass Incarceration in the United States, a new report by Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union, finds that supervision – probation and parole – drives high numbers of people, disproportionately those who are Black and Brown, right back to jail or prison, while in large part failing to help them get needed services and resources. In states examined in the report, people are often incarcerated for violating the rules of their supervision or for low-level crimes, and receive disproportionate punishment following proceedings that fail to adequately protect their fair trial rights.
