Zz Federal And State Prison Privatization - Poem by Saiom Shriver

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 under Clinton, 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,
guards it's harder to monitor, guards who are brutal or
who rape the prisoners etc. etc.

Wackenhut has changed its name to GEO because of negative publicity (as Blackwater became Xe before it was sold to the Chinese) .
Historically it has had connections to the CIA.
