Prison Inc.: The Secret Industry [Infographic]

Comments: 4

  • This is a pretty thought provoking article but somewhat incomplete. It would be useful if it mentions the correlation to drop/increase in crime.

    • I have been a police Lt. For 30 years. Believe me there is no reduction in crimes committed upon society when you lock up individuals. There is always someone to take their place. It is similar to the debate on marijunna legalization. Organized crime and law enforcement are allies. Both interests want and lobby for stricter penalties because the it translates into more law enforcement personnel and a higher price for the illegal substance. Remember prohibition….how we’ll did that work.
