The Great Private Prison Scam

Another of the innumerable reasons to get money out of politics.

You would think that in the debate over the pros and cons of privatizing things like Social Security, healthcare, and the education system, examples like this would get brought up for consideration.  Of course, both sides are bought out so there is no debate.  The money ALWAYS wins.

One thought on “The Great Private Prison Scam”

  1. Private prisons can only work if they must operate under the same constraints as public prisons (or vice versa). There may be some efficiencies if the state relies on the private sector. However, those who are in the trenches,e.g. prison wardens, prison guards in public prisons and some who represent prisoners should be responsible for identifying issues and working closely to negotiate those contracts. That’s not the way it’s done, apparently. Disappointing, but not surprising.
