Luke Whyte

Blogger on California's correctional facilities

In September of 2010, Luke Whyte quit his job as editor for the online magazine for correctional professionals, and began hitchhiking across California writing honest life stories about correctional officers, parolees, wardens, ex-cons and any anyone else with a strong connection to the criminal justice system.

Those stories are collected here:

The idea is to enable interviewees to tell their story, to create empathy and understanding between readers and storytellers and, hopefully, to help humanize and explain 30 years of unchecked growth in California’s correctional system.
