I hate anyone who makes a profit by incarcerating human beings.
I don't watch the nights Rachel is gone, but last week she was on and I thought of your blog when she laid it out for us. There always seems to be unethical greedy people behind extreme view points. This is another example of that.Sadly corporations often consider people as just another profit center or means to sales.
I couldn't agree more, Charlene. The profit motive isn't always such a good thing. It is too often manipulated to result in the exploitation of large groups of people for the benefit of a very few. I see so many parallels between the private prison industry and the oil industry, or the military-indsutrial complex. But while I can understand the desire to seek profit in those industries (aside from what is done as a result of that desire), it still boggles my mind that not only do people want to profit off incarcerating other human beings, they continue to be allowed to do so regardless of the fact that they screw up seemingly every phase of their operation (besides bringing in ever-increasing profits).
