Maryam Ahranjani writes about personal experiences with mass school shootings in "The Prisonization of America's Public Schools," published in October 2017 in Hofstra Law Review. The article takes a critical stance against what Ahranjani terms the growing "criminal infrastructure" metal detectors, surveillance cameras and police officers within our nation's schools. Searchlight New Mexico asked Ahranjani what kind of national response makes sense in the wake of the Parkland mass shooting.
