Lockdown on Rikers

by Mary E Buser | 01 November 2015
Category: General Biography
Synopsis
Mary Buser began her career at Rikers Island as a social work intern brimming with ideas, ready to make a difference and eager to help incarcerated women find a better path for themselves. Her initial experience working with mothers in the nursery and women in the Mental Observation Unit was rewarding and she returned to Rikers for full time employment after finishing graduate school. But her second time around was radically different: assigned to a men's jail, her return coincided with the dawn of 'stop-and-frisk' policy, unprecedented arrest and the biggest jailhouse movement in history. This title shines a light into the deepest and most horrific recesses of the criminal justice system and shows how far it has really drifted from the ideals we espouse.
