Jindal Slap-Down

I'm going to keep this one brief. Linked is an excellent opinion piece from a college freshman from Louisiana named Macy Linton. Macy is upset at governor Bobby Jindal's recent proposal to privatize much of the state prison system, despite the state's moratorium on using private prisons. These sorts of proposals are springing up all over the country in response to the fiscal crisis states are currently facing. Or the hoax of a fiscal crisis that's being perpetrated by the republican party to defund and neuter the democratic voter base, however you like to see it...

Anyhoo, instead of trying to reiterate what she said, I'll let her powerful words speak for themselves (and hopefully, the entire state of Louisiana):

"Whether the numbers turn in our favor or not, privatization of prisons shouldn't be an option.

Compromising Louisiana's ethics is not the solution to fixing our money problems."

Right on Macy!


  1. Hi, this is Macy Linton from the LSU Reveille. Sorry for the late response (I found this piece just now). Thank you so much for the kind words and your work in raising awareness! Hopefully, Jindal will rethink his plans.
