"What is Prison Gerrymandering?"




I thought this  topic could be of interest to Ross since he has studied criminal justice. As a layman I wasn't aware of how much the location of prisons can change the representatives and create perverse incentives for rural representatives to support "the prison industrial complex."


Credentials: Peter Hanink is an assistant professor of sociology with a PhD in criminal justice so his video lecture has weight.


I didn't know where to put this topic and if it's not in the right place you can move it.

Is this a US only problem or does it also fit for places like canada, spain, russia and south africa for example?
