100% wrong and popular disinfo. Private prisons have to guarantee they can handle 95% occupancy rate, that doesnt mean they get paid for having more - and they get paid the same for having less, in fact.

SHILL SHILL SHILL DISINFO
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19099851

So what are the occupancy rates state by state. Figure 2 in this pdf file shows capacity and population follow the same curve and capacity is almost always the same number ahead, not very much, 10% perhaps.

Soon gangs with powerful weapons will knock down the walls no longer recognizing the right to lock them up.

Gangsters will buy up stock and guards and run their syndicates from jail owning the Warden and staff.

This is the end of authority to imprison anyone. It reduces incarceration to kidnapping or slave labor.

The center cannot hold. Revolution could build from this.

^^^^^^^^


Because the only reason anyone stays in prison and doesn't constantly organize escapes and violent overthrow is a silent agreement to accept the right of the State to lock them up. Remove that and you have a bunch of kidnapped people and slae labor locked behind big walls, that cannot hod before the society and prisoners rebel.

This is why at some point Republicans and Libertarians will abandon the guise of Capitalism for Fascism in order to gain a semblance of authority.

It will fail.

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.

Actually you are full of shit, legislators, judges and prosecutors get rich from the bribery that takes place and states and counties are hungry for that funding, which they DO NOT spend on the prisoners.. There is absolutely no reason why so many people should be in prison in a civilized county unless there is money and corruption involved, and there is. Make the county and states pay for housing their own prisoners without federal funding and watch the prison and jail populations drop to 1/10 what thy are now.

Justice is a farce in the US, if you can afford a good lawyer you can be guilty as hell and go free, but if you can't you're basically fucked,guilty or not.

Plea bargaining and court appointed attorneys are the work of EVIL. The court appointing an attorney for the accused is like the enemy in a war providing the generals for an army.
Every person accused of a crime should have a trial with full due process of the law as outlined in the Constitution and competent representation, and plea bargaining should be done away with completely. Then the prison population would drop to 1/25th what it is now. The problem we have is we have made it profitable for corrupt crooks to put us in jail. No rehabilitation takes place in prison, every prisoner learned nothing but how to be a better criminal. What sense does that make?

Private prisons are built, and it's up to the "system" to bring in the prisoners.

Are judges bought? I don't know for sure, but based on commentary behind the scenes, I think so.

In the criminal arena, I do know this:

I've been subbed in on cases where the defendant had a public defender. The public defender hasn't tried very hard on behalf of the defendant, hence the defendant looking for a private attorney.

Once I become involved, I am able to get a better deal for the defendant, if he's guilty, but not so guilty as to justify a prison sentence.

The way I see it, they are taking advantage of people who can't afford a private attorney in order to stock the prisons.

I think everyone should ask for a jury trial, whether they are guilty or not. Think about it. How overburdened would the system become?

I have had several cases that were settled on the day of trial because we played a game of chicken with the district attorney.

If everyone asked for a trial, the system would be overburdened and maybe not everyone would be sent to prison. Maybe more cases would be dropped or maybe better deals would be made.

 Quoting: amhealy

I have always said plea bargaining is what is behind the large prison populations and NO ONE should EVER plead guilty, and should demand a trial with a jury of their peers as the Constitution demands.

This would force prosecutors and courts to concentrate only on legitimate and strong cases with real , hard evidence of guilt, and also force them to stop prosecution of "crimes" that have no victim, which is a oxymoron and a fallacy.

There is no way "they" could convict a 25th of what they do now if everyone demanded a jury trial. People are just manipulated by a well oiled tactic that involves coercion and threats.
. Most are scared into pleading to a 'reduced' charge by a lawyer WORKING FOR THE FUCKING COURT. I implore everyone who I know who is charged with a crime, from speeding to felonies, PLEAD NOT GUILTY. Let a jury decide your fate. A jury will have more compassion than the system in almost every case because they all have had experience with the system directly or indirectly and most know it is corrupt.

People are now being arrested for serious felony crimes in the total absence of any evidence or witnesses, merely based on say so. Exculpatory evidence is systematically withheld, and prosecutors who are given what is know as absolute immunity prosecute people THEY KNOW ARE INNOCENT for political and capital gain. This is unconstitutional and any judge issuing a warrant for arrest in such a case is guilty of official misconduct and possibly conspiracy to deprive an individual of their civil rights, which is a federal felony.

If anyone involved in the criminal justice system has discussed how they will successfully convict a person who has no evidence or witnesses against him , for instance police officers judges and prosecutors and a judge signs a warrant that is baseless under the law, they ARE guilty of conspiracy.

WE NEED TO FIGHT BACK USING THE VERY SYSTEM THAT FEEDS OFF OF US and knowledge is the key, and fear the enemy..

Fundamental is the right to a jury trial of your pers and remaindering that right be upheld.

 Quoting: amhealy


What successful lawyer would ever want to give up a lucrative and profitable practice to become a judge if they did not intend to engage in corrupt activity and accept bribes?

Lawyers who know them work together, the lawyer gets a kickback from the bribe and the judge gets the lions share. It's how things are done.

A state judge in Texas gets a salary of 60,000 dollars per annum, many lawyers make that on a single case. The numbers don't add up and it makes no sense for any lawyer to become a judge unless he is crooked as a snake.

I have never seen a judge that didn't extreme live high off the hog either, have you?

 Quoting: ANHEDONIC

I should add that the accused no matter what his financial state is be it rich or poor should be allowed to choose an attorney that best represents his needs, the fee paid for BY THE ACCUSER unless the accused is convicted.

This is real justice.

There is no way that "and justice for all" clause in the pledge of allegiance to this country can be real when those accused of crimes are not treated precisely equitably and have to pay exorbitant sums of money to get proper representation.

The OFFICIAL accuser should have to pay for the legal defense of the accused UNTIL he is found guilty, and if he is not should have to absorb the costs. Again, this would dramatically reduce prosecution of cases which have no merit and enforcement of laws which have no victim.

The officials doing the prosecution would have to REALLY be working towards the sequestering of dangerous individuals from society instead of profiteering through corruption, and the thousands of baseless laws would have to be discarded. The ONLY legitimate law involves protecting and individual or individuals from the actions of others.

Re: 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.

Re: Private Prisons: The More Americans They Put Behind Bars The More Money They Make
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.

This is 1+1 USAC851 - Surely,shirely?

The way to eliminate these people profiteering from corruption is to sue and prosecute them out of business. nearly every privately ran prison engages in practices which are in violation of the law and or the constitution.

Cruel and unusual punishment is not allowed, and to me it seems the meaning the framers of the Constitution intended is that the punishment should fit the crime.

Explain to me how 20 years of a persons life is an equitable punishment for stealing a few thousand dollars from a bank without harming anyone, as an example.

It takes the avergae person about a month to earn 2,000 dollars, add that to the "fear factor" harm of the crime and you come up with what, about 5 months-10 as a legitimate sentence?
