Raging against the private prison machine

February 16, 2012

Home sick today, and it wasn’t due to the private prison industry in Arizona but I wouldn’t blame my stomach if it were. I wrote about this topic today on Daily Kos, and it’s always nice to get a comment from Meteor Blades, probably the most respected member of the community. Mainly I hope the legislation concerning private prisons fares better this year. I expect it will go down to a quiet death in the Republican-controlled Commerce committee. But if it doesn’t, that would be good. And if my diary gets a few more people to call or email the committee chairs and puts pressure on them to take action, that would be good too. These private prisons are a plague. They bring nothing of worth to the table for the state or its people, it’s just money in the bank for the corporate interests; and that is what makes their Republican lackeys in the legislature despicable.
