Two lived. One, whom his shotfailed to kill, he also stabbed. For this, Rideau spent 44 years in Angolaprison. A black man, 19 years old at the time of the crime, Rideau wasconvicted three times by all-white juries. A mixed-race jury reduced hisconviction to manslaughter. In the Place of Justice is his exploration of theAmerican penal system, primarily the ways in which racism, both covertand institutionalized, plays a role in determining the length of prison sentencesand the ways in which those sentences are served. As editor of the prison newsletter, Rideau placed a high premium onjournalistic integrity. He became a celebrity prisoner for his exposés onprison life, including sexual slavery, drugs, weapons, "families," petty guardsunrestrained by management or conscience, inedible food, filthy conditions, and brutal rivalries. Those incarcerated for violent crimes are often dehumanized by society, just as those who kill dehumanize their victims, parsing them over time tobothersome abstractions. If integrity can be defined as the willingness tohold oneself accountable, In the Place of Justice is as much a look insideAngola prison and the judicial system as it is a fascinating yet unsettlingjourney inside the minds of those who do time there.
