Why AA in Prison?

See for yourself. . .come to one of our meetings some time!

THERE has been many an AA group instituted throughout the Midwest in prisons and at the same time a very burning question raised; "Why start a group in a penitentiary? Those people do not have an alcoholic problem in there!"

Perhaps these persons who are skeptical have a point but, brother, there are a great many more points on the other side of the ledger. Too, we have often wondered if the persons raising these complaints are as good AA's as they profess? Have they actually studied the Twelfth Step?
