Abolish Risk Assessment

In this episode, Rustbelt Abolition Radio speaks with three abolitionists who attended the 2018 Allied Media Conference in Detroit.

Chelsea Barabas and Rodrigo Ochigame of MIT outline the reformist logic of pre-trial assessment and discuss the recent history of individualized actuarial fairness, and whether they see opportunities for data driven abolitionist organizing.

Hamid Khan of the Stop LAPD Spying Coalition provides further historical context for surveillance and algorithmic policing tools deployed by technocratic stalker state, and how they intersect with contemporary redlining and the suppression of dissent.
