sorta old link

This story by Boing Boing contributor Charles Platt about Son Tran, a Vietnamese-American serving life in prison, is probably the most gripping thing I've read all day. It's equal parts indictment on the US prison system and the stark, depressing hues of prison life itself. The accompanying pdf link in the article, written by Son Tran himself, is very good reading.
