I began this blog in May 2009 following the death of Marcia Powell at Perryville State Prison in Goodyear, Arizona. It is not intended to prescribe the path that leads to freedom from the prison industrial complex.

Rather, these are just my observations in arguably the most racist, fascist, militaristic state in the nation at a critical time in history for a number of intersecting liberation movements. From Indigenous resistance to genocidal practices, to the fight over laws like SB1070 and the ban on Ethnic Studies, Arizona is at the center of many battles for human rights, and thus the struggle for prison abolition as well - for none are free until all are. I retired the blog in APRIL 2013.

Three men were arrested Sunday in the death of an illegal immigrant whose body was found Wednesday in a burning home in south Phoenix.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Lisa Allen identified the three men as 20-year-old Adan Beoanos Gonzales, 19-year-old Matthew Moreno and 24-year-old Booz Moreno.

Allen said the men allegedly beat and stabbed the victim to death and then set the house on fire.

No motive was released, and authorities have yet to release the victim's name.
