VICE: Bert Burykill has died

http://www.vice.com/read/bert-burykill-has-died

I don’t know how many of you read Vice like I do, but I greatly enjoyed reading the Pen Pals feature, which talked about life in prison. Being a nerdy white kid, this was a perspective I never would have gotten on my own, so reading about it is enlightening, and helped me get out of the us/them trap which is so easy when living a privileged existence. Tragically, after getting his life mostly in order, Vice’s prison correspondent (who went by the pseudonym Bert Burykill) was killed in a car accident. He was 33.
