former inmates Kerik and Nacchio talk about prison

Former NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik, and former Qwest Communications CEO Joseph Nacchio may have done prison time for white collar crimes, not sex offenses, but they make important points about prison reform in this CNBC interview.

Both men talk about their time in prison--their worst day, time in solitary, what they feared--and they push to educate their audience about how prison often makes things worse because prison has nothing to do with rehabilitation.

It is interesting that the CNBC news anchor, Joe Kernen, seems completely unsurprised by anything Kerik and Nacchio say. Good to know that some people in the media already recognize what goes on in our justice system.

Watch the whole thing.
