Want to see something depressing? You have to get through about 45 states before you reach Rwanda.

Louisiana was first populated with crimincal, thieves, scumbags, whores, and other societies less than desirables, but its hard to believe after all this time that would be correlated.

We jail too many people for non-violent offenses... its ridiculous.

A swat team melts a baby's face, but finds no drugs.

They're sorry.

There's always a reason....just follow the money.

Tip of the iceberg.

Private Prisons Spend $45 Million On Lobbying, Rake In $5.1 Billion For Immigrant Detention Alone

Quote:

A decade ago, more than 3,300 criminal immigrants were sent to private prisons under two 10-year contracts the Federal Bureau of Prisons signed with CCA worth $760 million. Now, the agency is paying the private companies $5.1 billion to hold more than 23,000 criminal immigrants through 13 contracts of varying lengths.

CCA was on the verge of bankruptcy in 2000 due to lawsuits, management problems and dwindling contracts. Last year, the company reaped $162 million in net income. Federal contracts made up 43 percent of its total revenues, in part thanks to rising immigrant detention. GEO, which cites the immigration agency as its largest client, saw its net income jump from $16.9 million to $78.6 million since 2000.

I keep wondering when it will be enough, but the truth is, unless it personally affects them, the majority of Americans couldn't give a ****. If there was a total fascist takeover of the U.S. they'd probably stand in the street and throw flowers, just like the Germans did.

This is cute that you do this, but how much of the prison population is really held privately?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private..._United_States

Signs point to about 4%.

The reality is that bureaucratic fiefdoms are routinely just as eager for expansion as any private enterprise. And many politicians like bureaucratic fiefdoms because they like as many livelihoods (and votes) as possible under the umbrella of their budgetary discretion.

All over the country felons are being released. If anything we need more prisons. Fact is very few people get convicted that are innocent. Most if not all of our prison population is right were they belong.

We get it though the dems need more voters. We will fight that.
