CCA- Investing in crime.

Dangerous beyond belief, when the accounting/contracting fees are based on a head count rather than a facility cost. Yes, either overtly or covertly, or consciously or unconsciously, this is bad, especially for those who cannot afford “proper” legal representation, and have to rely on public defenders, who’s prices are also being subject to budget cuts.

I wonder how large their donations are and what their lobbying strength in D.C. is? Some of our representatives would sell us out again in a heartbeat.

No truer words.

The only practical way to do private prisons is to tie their payments to the recidivism rates of their prisoners. If we’re just keeping people out of the population, we’re accomplishing abso-fucking-lutely nothing.

Private prisons sound like such a nightmare scenario and after reading about the judicial corruption scandal in Pennsylvania, I want no part of that idea.
