Private Prisons: The More Americans They Put Behind Bars The More Money They Make
How would you describe an industry that wants to put more Americans in prison and keep them there longer so that it can make more money? In America today, approximately 130,000 people are locked up in private prisons that are being run by for-profit companies, and that number is growing very rapidly. Overall, the U.S. has approximately 25 percent of the entire global prison population even though it only has 5 percent of the total global population. The United States has the highest incarceration rate on the entire globe by far, and no nation in the history of the world has ever locked up more of its own citizens than we have. Are we really such a cesspool of filth and decay that we need to lock up so many of our own people? Or are there some other factors at work? Could part of the problem be that we have allowed companies to lock up men and women in cages for profit? The two largest private prison companies combined to bring in close to $3,000,000,000 in revenue in 2010, and the largest private prison companies have spent tens of millions of dollars on lobbying and campaign contributions over the past decade. Putting Americans behind bars has become very big business, and those companies have been given a perverse incentive to push for even more Americans to be locked up. It is a system that is absolutely teeming with corruption, and it is going to get a lot worse unless someone does something about it.

Problem is the logic of this doesn't work. Prisons dont put people behind bars, the justice system does. Private prisons have NO control over it, and there is no reason to believe why the courts would want to put more people behind bars they dont get paid more for a guilty sentence.

This thread/article is typical conspiritard insanity.

Re: Private Prisons: The More Americans They Put Behind Bars The More Money They Make
I guess it is the patriotic duty of many American to turn themselves in as potential terrorists and really expand the need for facilities and staffed by federal pen inmates as they already know how the rules get applied.
There you go, economy up and running on 8 cylinders (in a v12)

You are more likely to see open prison where only the outside gate is wired shut. If you are rich enough your family can come in for meals and even full-time accommodation if outside the walls means death. The cities getting ring roads could be fenced off in no time to keep people in rather than out as the dreaded prison city run by the inmates and that probably means no formal elections.

Ciavarella was accused of wrongfully incarcerating youths as part of a deal with the for-profit PA and Western PA Child juvenile detention centers that replaced some older state-run facilities. In February, Ciavarella was convicted in 12 of 39 counts of crimes such as racketeering, money laundering and tax evasion in connection with his acceptance of almost $1 million from Robert Mericle, the builder of the detention centers in question.

Doing 7 years or more for pot possession while white collar crime is never prosecuted to the extent that all the crooks go to jail. That is to keep the number at full capacity so the shareholders get the maximum return of their wall street shares. The guards and prisoners are both nothing but meat to the admin.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33958965


Franklin County, Ohio spends .80 per inmate on meals. They are only required to give them 8 oz of meat per day. It used to cost $1.10 and the new Sheriff cut the size of their meals even more. They starve their inmates. You pay extra for commissary, which they raise the prices for profit. Most are too poor to afford it and just do without. They come out looking like skeletons.

Most are kids arrested on petty drug charges. They treat them like dirt.

You mean you don't understand how the private prison industry lobbies to maintain the draconian drug laws that ensure their institutions are filled to capacity????

Do you suppose they just build their facilities and cross their fingers that the congressman will pass laws that ensure people are targetted for incarceration and long mandatory prison sentences???

Do you think the alcohol & pharmaceutical industries just sit back and crosses their fingers that marijuana will not be legalized?

Come on... Where there is money to be made there is lobbying and big business is in bed with the politicians... You scratch my back, I'll scratch yours is the policy.... Campaign donations, payoffs, appointments to special positions within companies once politicians end their political careers.... They are all in cahootz.... Nothing happens by chance.
