THE HARVARD DEBATE TEAM
LOST TO A TEAM OF INMATES THAT

ARE SERVING TIME FOR
MANSLAUGHTER.

THIS IS AN
AMAZING STORY.
APPARENTLY THE
HARVARD TEAM FACED OFF WITH

THESE INMATES, AND THEY ASSUMED
THAT THE INMATES WOULD NOT BE

WELL PREPARED FOR THE DEBATE.
SINCE THEY UNDERESTIMATED THEM,
THEY LOST BIG-TIME.
AFTER AN
HOUR OF THE FAST-MOVING DEBATE,

THE JUDGES DECIDED THAT THE
INMATES WON.

"THE AUDIENCE BURST
INTO APPLAUSE.
THAT INCLUDED ABOUT
SEVENTY-FIVE OF THE PRISONERSí

FELLOW STUDENTS AT THE BARD
PRISON INITIATIVE, WHICH OFFERS

A RIGOROUS COLLEGE EXPERIENCE TO
MEN AT EASTERN NEW YORK
CORRECTIONAL FACILITY."

THEY ARE TRYING TO REHABILITATE
THESE INDIVIDUALS SO THAT

WHEN THEY ARE OUT OF PRISON THEY
DO NOT GO BACK TO PRISON.

RECIDIVISM IS A VERY SERIOUS
PROBLEM IN THE UNITED

STATES, MOST PRISONERS END UP
GOING BACK TO PRISON.

AS A RESULT, THERE ARE SOME
INITIATIVES THAT ARE TRYING

TO COMBAT THAT.
"THE BYZANTINE HAD ITS FIRST
DEBATE IN THE SPRING 2014,

BEATING THE U.S.
MILITARY ACADEMY AT
WEST POINT, NEW YORK.

PREPARING FOR THESE DEBATES HAS
ITS CHALLENGES.

INMATES CANNOT USE THE
INTERNET FOR RESEARCH.

THE PRISON ADMINISTRATION MUST
APPROVE REQUESTS FOR BOOKS

AND ARTICLES, WHICH
CAN TAKE WEEKS."

THEY WERE AT A SIGNIFICANT
DISADVANTAGE, AND ON TOP OF

THAT THEY BEAT STUDENTS THAT
ARE GOING TO HARVARD.

FIRST OFF, IT WAS
SEVENTY-FIVE PRISONERS WHO WERE

THERE TO WATCH, NOT SEVENTY-FIVE
PERCENT.
MUCH MORE IMPORTANTLY,
THE JUDGES RECOGNIZE, HEY LOOK,

WE ARE IN THIS BIASED SITUATION.
EVERYBODY WANTS TO ROOT FOR THE
HOME TEAM, EVERYBODY WANTS TO
CHEER, AND THEY RECOGNIZE THAT.

SO THEY ARE VERY STRICT ABOUT
SCORING AT STANDARDS THAT

ARE APPROVED IN THE
DEBATE SYSTEM.

THE JUDGES ARE AWARE THAT YOU
WANT TO ROOT FOR THE

UNDERDOGS, AND SO THEY
TOOK THAT INTO ACCOUNT.

THAT IS WHY THEY LOST TO WEST
POINT IN THE REMATCH.

THEY LEGITIMATELY BEAT THE
HARVARD DEBATE TEAM.

THAT IS CRAZY.
EVEN MORE AMAZING BY THE FACT
THAT, AS ANA TOLD YOU, THEY

DON'T HAVE THE INTERNET.
THAT
IS SOME OLD-SCHOOL STUFF.

THAT
IS WHAT I WOULD DO WHEN I WAS A
KID.

YOU WOULD GO TO THE
LIBRARY, USE THE CATALOG INDEXES
SYSTEM, GO TO THE SHELF, FIND

THE BOOK AND READ THE BOOK.
THAT IS HOW THEY ARE PREPARING,
THEY STILL BEAT THE HARVARD
DEBATE TEAM.
BANANAS.
BUT THAT
IS NOT THE MOST INTERESTING PART

OF THE STORY.
TO ME, THE MOST
INTERESTING PART OF THIS STORY
IS, AS A COUNTRY WE SPEND $212

BILLION TO IMPRISON 2.3 MILLION
PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY.
THAT IS
NOT ONE PERCENT OF THE COUNTRY,

BUT IT IS GETTING THERE.
THAT
IS AN UNBELIEVABLE NUMBER.

WE
IMPRISON MORE PEOPLE PER CAPITA
THAN ALMOST ANYWHERE ELSE IN THE

WORLD.
THE AVERAGE PRISONER COSTS
$29,000 A YEAR TO KEEP IN PRISON.

SO WHEN YOU SAY, JUST PUT THEM
IN PRISON, WAR ON DRUGS, WHATEVER ñ

DO SOME PEOPLE NEED TO BE
IMPRISONED?

OF COURSE.
WE WANT THE MURDERERS, RAPISTS,
THE CHILD MOLESTERS, THE ROBBERS IN PRISON.

WE NEED THEM IN PRISON.
THEY ARE A THREAT TO SOCIETY.
BUT REMEMBER, ANY TIME THAT
YOU PUSH FOR HARDER LAWS ON

EVERYTHING, ON EVERYTHING, EACH
PRISONER COSTS $29,000 OF YOUR

TAXPAYERíS MONEY.
OUR RECIDIVISM
RATE IS SIXTY-EIGHT PERCENT.

68 PERCENT.
OKAY, NOW, THEY GET REARRESTED.
OVER THOSE, SOME PORTION ARE
PROBATION, OR ACQUITTED,

ETC.
SO, THERE IS A FIFTY
PERCENT RETURN TO PRISON.

WITHIN THREE YEARS, FIFTY
PERCENT ARE BACK IN PRISON.

SOME PEOPLE THINK THERE
IS NOTHING THAT

YOU CAN DO ABOUT THAT.
TURNS OUT, THAT'S
NOT TRUE AT ALL.

RESEARCH INDICATES THAT THESE
HIGH AND EXPENSIVE RATES OF

RECIDIVISM FALL TO LESS THAN
TWO PERCENT IF

PRISONS OFFER SIGNIFICANT
EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY TO

INCARCERATED MEN AND WOMEN.
AMONG FORMERLY INCARCERATED
BARD STUDENTS, LESS THAN TWO

PERCENT HAVE RETURNED TO PRISON.
THINK ABOUT THAT.
FORGET
BARD FOR A SECOND, FORGET THIS

PARTICULAR PROGRAM.
OBVIOUSLY
IT IS WORKING, THEY BEAT THE

HARVARD DEBATE TEAM, ETC.
BUT
IF YOU JUST EDUCATE PRISONERS,

THE RATE DROPS FROM SIXTY
PERCENT TO TWO PERCENT.
THAT FREES HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE.
THEY SERVE THEIR TIME, AND THEY
ARE NO LONGER CRIMINALS AFTER

THAT.
RECIDIVISM IS THAT THEY
NO LONGER DID ANOTHER CRIME.

YOU SAVE THAT PERSON GOING BACK
TO PRISON, YOU SAVE TAXPAYERS

$29,000 A YEAR FOR HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
ARE WE
MENTAL?

WHY ARE WE NOT EDUCATING
THE PRISONERS?
I KNOW THAT
AMERICANS ARE MORE BARBARIC THAN

EUROPE, AND WE LOOK AT NORWAY,
AND I SEE HOW COMFORTABLE THEIR

PRISONS ARE AND I THINK, YOU
CRAZY, SOFTIE EUROPEANS,

RIGHT?
THEY ARE DOING IT FOR A
REASON, SO THAT PEOPLE DON'T

COME BACK AS MUCH.
YOU CAN'T
SOLVE EVERYONE'S PROBLEMS, SOME

PEOPLE ARE GOING TO
COMMIT CRIME ANYWAY.

BUT IF WE CAN REDUCE IT FROM
SIXTY-EIGHT PERCENT TO

TWENTY-TWO PERCENT, HOW CRAZY
ARE WE THAT WE DON'T TAKE

THAT ACTION?
YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOWER THE
RECIDIVISM RATE

FURTHER, IF YOU CHANGE CERTAIN
POLICIES FOR PRISONERS

AFTER THEY GET OUT OF PRISON.
FOR INSTANCE, RIGHT NOW,
EMPLOYERS ASK WHETHER OR

NOT SOMEBODY HAS
BEEN CONVICTED OF A FELONY.

IF THEY HAVE, THEY ARE DONE,
THEY WON'T GET A JOB.

I KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE REALLY
UNEASY ABOUT HIRING SOMEONE

WHO HAS A CRIMINAL RECORD.
ONE OF THE REASONS PEOPLE GO
BACK TO PRISON IS THAT THEY

DON'T HAVE MANY OPPORTUNITIES
AVAILABLE TO THEM AFTER

THEY GET OUT.
IF I AM A WARDEN OR A
GOVERNOR, IN ANY WAY RELATED TO

PRISONS, AND I SEE THESE
NUMBERS, THIS IS THE BIGGEST

NO-BRAINER OF ALL TIME.
OF
COURSE I AM GOING TO EDUCATE THE

PRISONERS, I DON'T WANT THEM TO
COMMIT MORE CRIMES AND HURT

MORE OF MY CITIZENS, AND I DON'T
WANT TO PAY TAXPAYER MONEY TO

IMPRISON THEM.
OF COURSE YOU
SHOULD EDUCATE THEM.

NOT BECAUSE YOU LIKE THEM, NOT
BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE

FRIENDLY TO THEM, BUT
BECAUSE IT WORKS.

IT WORKS, BUT I DON'T THINK
THOSE NECESSARILY WORKING IN THE

PRISON INDUSTRY WANT IT TO WORK.
I DON'T THINK THOSE IN LAW
ENFORCEMENT NECESSARILY WANT IT

TO WORK.
IT DOES NOT MATTER IF
YOU ARE IN A PRIVATE OR
PUBLICLY FUNDED

PRISON ñ THOSE WORKING IN THE
PRISON INDUSTRY HAVE AN

INCENTIVE TO KEEP LOCKING PEOPLE
UP.

THEY DON'T WANT TO LOWER
THE RECIDIVISM RATE, THEY WILL
BE OUT OF A JOB.
THAT WILL SUCK, WON'T IT?
YOU CAN'T DO THAT.
WE HAVE
GOT TO BE MORE RESPONSIBLE

CITIZENS.
THE PEOPLE WHO ARE
RUNNING THE PRISONS ARE

GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.
I KNOW
THEY WANT THEIR JOBS, THEY WANT

PROFITS, THEY WANT ALL THE
GOODIES THAT COME WITH IT, YOU

HAVE GOT TO END THIS NONSENSE.
YOU DON'T END THE PRISONS, YOU
JUST DO IT IN A SMARTER WAY.
IF IT IS TRUE WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT
BARD, AND I WOULDN'T TAKE THEIR
WORD FOR IT, I WOULD DO MANY

MORE STUDIES, BUT IF IT TURNS
OUT THAT THIS LOWERS YOUR

RECIDIVISM RATE, EVERY PERSON IN
THE COUNTRY SHOULD DO IT.

IF IT
IS TRUE, SIGN THEM UP.
WHO
DOESN'T WANT A RECIDIVISM RATE

OF TWO PERCENT?
WHAT IS WRONG
WITH YOU?

WHY DO YOU WANT TO HURT
YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS THAT WAY?
