A fictional correctional facility portrays convicted law enforcement officers being processed for incarceration.
Illustration by Fred Lowe

This drawing was inspired by my frustration with law enforcement officers — as well as judges, corrections administrators and government officials — not being held accountable for their crimes against the public. However, not all authority figures are bad; only a certain percent needs to be locked up.

I hereby introduce readers to “Benjamin Crump’s Accountability Correctional Institution.” In my imagining, the Accountability Correctional Institute receives and releases former police officers, as they are processed by ACI staff and tracked via three security monitors.
