Federal Prison Privatization - Poem by Saiom Shriver

Not just state prisons
but federal ones
they did privatize.

These corrupt
corporate prisons
have their own
private eyes.

Topic(s) of this poem: prison

Poet's Notes about The Poem

The US role as the most imprisoning nation on earth
results not only from criminalizing nonviolent actions
such as the smoking of marijuana, and mandatory
sentencing policies expropriated from the judiciary
by the executive, but in addition
the profit motive in privatized prisons which make
more money the more prisoners they have.

The bottom line in privatized prisons is saving money...
cheaper less healthy food, shoddier libraries if any,
brutal guards it's harder to monitor, etc. etc.
