Then the private companies wouldnt make any money as they are profiting from this. Its a business, it really doesnt save any taxpayers anything if private companies are banking on the state to arrest. Its a profitable business. They do nothing to rehabilitate you. The prison system is to blame just as much as Aaron was to blame for murder.
"The Spoils of Mass Incarceration
The United States imprisons more people — both per capita and in absolute terms — than any other nation in the world, including Russia, China, and Iran."
"Leading private prison companies essentially admit that their business model depends on high rates of incarceration. For example, in a 2010 Annual Report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), the largest private prison company, stated: "The demand for our facilities and services could be adversely affected by . . . leniency in conviction or parole standards and sentencing practices . . . ."
Wake up America!
They are investing in these prisons over education.. What do you think will happen??
