 Segment 1: "Car Thief Cops"
(3 minutes)
 

Police officers are forcing people to choose between time behind bars or turning over their money and property -- all without ever making an arrest.
This video is part of the Prison Profiteers series produced by Brave New Foundation's Beyond Bars campaign in partnership with the ACLU and The Nation. Narration by Henry Rollins. Research help provided by Prison Legal
News.


Segment 2: "Jazree's Court"
(8 minutes)
 
Jazree was like any other young kid: hanging out with friends and experiencing important milestones. She finished Elementary school and started the emotional roller coaster called puberty. She even started having crushes -- crushes on girls. All of these experiences impacted Jazree's future, but one experience overshadowed all others - Jazree's dad was sentenced to seven years in prison for possession of an unloaded firearm.


Segment 3: "The Internet's Own Boy:
The Story of Aaron Swartz
"
(105 minutes)
 
This feature film follows the story of programming prodigy and information activist Aaron Swartz. From Swartz's help in the development of the basic internet protocol RSS to his co-founding of Reddit, his fingerprints are all over the internet. But it was Swartz's groundbreaking work in social justice and political organizing combined with his aggressive approach to information access that ensnared him in a two-year legal nightmare. It was abattle that ended with the taking of his own life at the age of 26. Aaron's
story touched a nerve with people far beyond the online communities in which he was a celebrity. This film is a personal story about what we lose when we are tone deaf about technology and its relationship to our civil liberties.
