This website was created and is maintained by www.nebraskapen.org, a group of citizens concerned about inmates first amendment rights. This site is provided as a forum for inmates to provide their insights, opinions, and experience to a world that is rarely given the other side of the story. If you would like to join or help us please see the "Please Help" section. We welcome your comments.
The scope of this website will be articles written by the inmates that refer to media accounts, court decisions, legislative actions, or other government actions, and present opposing viewpoints by refering to other available documented facts and providing opposing analysis with the purpose of educating the public in mind. Priority will be given to those items that educate the public about the tools that are available to them on the outside to educate themselves on the issues without having to rely upon what the government of experts tells them to believe through the media. The website is not a forum for inmates to "whine" about being incarcerated. We emphasize bringing documented facts to the attention of the public that explain a different point of view. We describe this as "why-ning" vs. "Whining." The opinions in the articles are those of the authors and are not necessarily those of the organization or any of its members.
