Our main story this week is a contribution from our friends at Perilous Chronicle. Perilous is an independent digital research and media project focused on prisons, and moments of protest, unrest, and repression inside them in the US and Canada. This week, Perilous Chronicle’s Ridley Seawood guides us through the The Minnesota Sex Offender Program (MSOP) at Moose Lake, with a focus on how the program functions as a shadow prison: using civil commitment to indefinitely detain people deemed potentially dangerous to the public. This feature contains mention of both sexual assault and violence.
