"Throw Away The Key" is more than just a cry for prison reform — it is a call for the overthrow of the entire system of inequality and injustice that is merely exemplified by the inequalities in Policing and Sentencing. Mass Incarceration, Recidivism, Profiling, Stop And Frisk, Police Brutality (e.g., Tremaine McMillian) and Fatality (e.g., Oscar Grant), and Political Prisoners. These are symptoms of a greater societal problem. Then ad income to the equation, via for-profit prisons, and you have Modern Day Slavery: New Jim Crow. THIS MUST END.
