My Show with Alex and Jake Ep. 12: Interview with Dean Westwood

August 25, 2017

This week we take a serious turn and bring in our first guest on the show, Dean Westwood. Dean is a person with a disability and was recently incarcerated in three of Oregon's correctional facilities. Dean discusses his experience and troubling circumstances with the department of corrections. It's said in the show but what happened to Dean was a miscarraige of justice.

Links to Dean's blog with the ACLU, the Vice report by Rebecca McCray and the ACLU's report on prisoners with physical disabilities: Caged In are below.
