  • It is a modern slave trade, and Prison Corporations are getting more and more powerful.


    "In a 1990s report, on CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) "It takes time to bring inmate population levels up to where they cover costs. Low occupancy is a drag on profits... company earnings would be strong if CCA succeeded in ramp(ing) up population levels in its new facilities at an acceptable rate"

    • @stirgy Spooky stuff. American civilians are a comodity to be bought and sold.
      This has an almost Matrix feel to it.
      If the corporations can only get more people (batteries) into the for profit prisons (power plant), scary.

  • Quite sad to see it run as a business. Obviously they do not make punishments harsh enough to deter repeat offenders.

    I want the chair and an expedited judicial system!!!!!

  • What I find strange about this is the USA practically invented the concept of forgiveness and rehabilitation, way back around 1800

    They cut back the death penalty to only the most heinous crimes, banned torture...but more relevantly developed the 'Penitentary', i.e. its not just a prison for punishment, but its going to make you better, so you can rejoin society

    How idealism fades...now the USA is the only developed western nation that still executes people, and keeps an absolutely vast amount More..

    • @lucidx1 Nice in theory, but they keep on Death Row for like 20 years...appeal after appeal

      Still, I would be in favor of capital punishment for the most serious crimes

    • @ElegantDecline I think they keep them on death row officially to make sure no evidence emerges that the person is innocent.

      Unofficially I think they prolong it to mentally torture the convict and the appeals give them hope which is abruptly taken away.

      Seems like a good idea to me! They know they will die for their crimes and makes them suffer for doing what they did.

    • @Dolarhyde Over 200 years ago, that's a long time to mature and change that attitude but if America prefers to blame others rather than except responsibility for the current state of affairs in a country that they have fully manages since winning independence well I guess anything going wrong in the USA is some other countries fault.

  • We punish criminals over here instead of giving them a slap on the wrist like in other countries. So obviously a higher percentage will be in jail, etc.
    Sorry about your confusion.

  • Have you seen WHO, they are putting behind bars MB?? It's those of us they ARE'NT putting behind bars that will make a difference in taking this Nation back in the coming months and years.

    Who of you and yours will be able to fight the Communist/muslim controllers taking your Nation down?

    Good luck. And I mean that.

  • Do the crime do the time. But at least Americans are innocent until proven guilty as opposed to Guilty until proven innocent like your backwards ass system.

    Most people dont do there full time due to Parole and good behavior points.

    • @skatman21 Lol, your legal system was originally based on ours...Britain was the first country to have 'Habeas Corpus' in the world i.e. authority has no right to touch you until charged in an independent court

      "But at least Americans are innocent until proven guilty..."

      You wanna go have a chat with the TSA and US Police about that.
      According to the many videos posted on LL every day, apparently they don't concur with you.

    • @AllahIsMyBitch Militarily that is true but it comes at an enormous cost and to the detriment of schools roads bridges power generation infrastructure and because of the Ginormous debt the US owes the rest of the world it will come to an end eventually America will not be able to support it's military appetite or it's appetite for military adventure and the decline when it comes will probably be dramatic.
