Typically, persons who have done their time in prison always seem unable to fit into society as normal citizens. For Lyle Howry and Jason Rainwater, this narrative can be changed and inmates can become better even after being a prison. To this end, they have begun the production of a series titled “A Prisoner’s Path” advocating for prison reforms in prisons around the 52 states of the United States of America while diving deep into the lives of prisoners and how they transformed from hardened criminals to being better humans.
“A Prisoner Path” is a docuseries on criminal justice reform that depicts a completely different twist. According to Lyle Howry and Jason Rainwater, “We want to show the world, there is still good in people if given the right tools and support with a second chance. It’s all about education and “Prison Reform Programs”, not just throw people back out to the streets with no path or plan.”
From the Penitentiary Marion to Rikers Island to the Louisiana State Penitentiary to Leavenworth Federal Penitentiary to Folsom State Prison and other prisons in the US, supposed hardened criminals can be transformed provided the prison reforms advocated by Lyle Howry and Jason Rainwater in this new series are adopted and duly implemented. The most hardened criminals with the right guidance can become the best of nation builders if only prison reforms will be institutionalized in prisons in the US.
The Federal Bureau of Prisons should offer a new reform program before inmates being released, helping non-violent prisoners, men, and women, to be able to have a trade and therapy when released back into society and reunite with their families and kids to rekindle the relationships they once never had. This is essentially what “A Prisoner’s Path” emphasizes, digging deep into the lives of non-violent prisoners to their recovery into the real world again.
