Corporation of America, the largest for-profit prison company, describes why this is a market that you’d want to sink your money into. A 74 billion dollar industry that at the moment is only 10% privatized. It’s just another scary reminder that locking people up in this country, is making some people rich.
A bad economy leads to crime, by necessity, so the marriage between the Privatized prisons and the fascist government is a demonic union. The “for profit” prisons lobby for laws to ensure that people land in jail. Prisons are now seen as a capitalist tool to make profits by enslaving people in prisons to work for free. The conditions of those prisons (over time) will deteriorate as profit takes precedence over safety and health of the inmates.
The objective of the privatized prisons is the make money and the laws being passed by our fascist government are ensuring that the prison population grows exponentially. SOPA, PIPA, NDAA and 40,000 other laws have been passed by our corrupt legislature. One of those laws will surely hit each and every one of the citizens in the USA. Minorities and immigrants are being hit hard by these laws but NOBODY is safe from prison in a prison economy.
Advocates for Peace and Social Justice abhors the privatized prisons as they are a gross violation of civil and human rights. Incarcerating a person for doing a punishable crime, under the rule of law, is one thing but creating laws that are designed to imprison people is a violation of human rights. The privatized prison systems will lead to enslavement and massive human rights abuses. An economy that is prison based is a fascist economy that encourages Police State tyranny. The time to speak up is NOW ! Say NO to privatized prisons ! A human being is NOT a commodity !
