Our Cynical Prison-Industrial Complex

Just wanted to drop a quick link here to a great story from The Guardian that discusses our prison-industrial complex and its perverse incentives to lock up an ever-growing segment of our population.  I'll let the byline speak for the article:

"A major factor in why US prisons are overflowing is the highly profitable privatised industry that has an incentive to fill them."
