The private prison industry has rapidly expanded in recent decades as the proportion of incarcerated people quadrupled under the failed "tough on crime" and drug war policies of the 1980s and 1990s, according to the report. Lawmakers are beginning to roll back policies such as mandatory minimum sentencing that have given the United States the highest incarceration rate in the world. However, private prison companies aren't going anywhere: They continue to spend millions of dollars on campaign donations and lobbying efforts to influence criminal legal policy and ensure that their profits continue to grow. - See more at: http://www.occupy.co...h.D87F6z00.dpuf

Another aspect of 'slavery in america'.  First auctioning prisoners for corporate manufacture, now more 'codes' and 'laws' to fill the company quotas...like traffic tickets

The corporate mentality demands that they have a the ultimate right to exist over and above every living thing.  They say they are too big to fail or go to jail.  


Are they really?

This is the fourth article (PART1, PART2, PART3) in a five-part series examining the US legal system. The series collectively argues that corporate media and political rhetoric have made Americans acquiescent toward corruption in the US legal system. This piece uses Coalinga State Hospital in California to illuminate the corruption that is taking place inside the justice system’s institutions.
The elderly are also abused. In New Mexico, a private prison owned by the Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), put Carol Lester, a 73-year-old grandmother, incarcerated for embezzling money to fund her gambling addiction, in solitary confinement for challenging the lack of medical care at the facility. Women are often abused in prison.  In California, over 144 bilateral tubal ligations, or tube-tying procedures, were forced on female inmates to prevent pregnancy. A 2014, report by the Justice department found that the Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women in Alabama saw inmates “raped by guards, forced to use toilet in front of staff, and take part in strip show contests.” Other abuses included exorbitant phone call charges and New York inmates were beaten and sodomized by guards.

Justice as a commodity? Surely you jest! How can a decent society allow such corporate crap to continue. They've created a revolving income by implementing new laws and increasing fines, sanctions, and time for just about anything. How else does corporate profit increase unless the lobbyists for these types of business continue pressuring the government to add more control and restrictions upon the people to rake in more profit.


Hey Ghost! How ya doin? I saw your little medley on the music thread. You forgot one that may be relevant...

Private prison stocks are flying on Trump victory
Private prison stocks soared Wednesday after Republicans won control of Congress and the White House.
Corrections Corporations of America (CXW), which has renamed itself CoreCivic, and GEO Group (GEO) had suffered some of their biggest declines over the last several months.
