CCA just released their first quarter 2011 earnings statement. For the first three months of 2011, CCA earned more than 40 million dollars, an increase of more than $5 million over the same period last year.
This breaks down to about $477,777 PER DAY in profit, or more than $5 in profit every single second of the year so far.
All for just locking people up and routinely denying them rehabilitative services and medical attention. Who knew it could be so easy?
How anyone could think that earning this much money to perform an inherently governmental function by depriving people of their liberty is OK, I will just never be able to comprehend.
