The market logic is simple: the more prisoners the prisons house more federal funds are passed on to the CCA and other prisons, gradually increasing profits. According to the Pew Charitable Trusts, the sector recorded consecutive record profit during the recent years and is the second most profitable investors in the country.
 
Arresting people absolutely become a lucrative business for white private sector especially for lobbyists to go to Washington to ensure that the laws of the country to work to prod the mass incarceration and the poor to continue to be sent to jail," says political scientist Chris Kirkham to the portal Huffington Post.
 
With the implementation of market neo-liberal dynamics to prisons, the U.S. prison population GREW BY OVER 500%- value representing 2.2 million people in U.S. prisons. The U.S., incidentally, home to 25% of the prisonal population in the world.

Yep orison is big business, this is why they target blks or ppl in blk areas. I'm not even gonna say they target "poor" ppl cause I really don't think they target poor whites like they do blks.
Ppl always claim it's a class issue but I don't believe it is, they'll target blk ppl no matter what, whether they're upper, middle or lower class. And that's the truth

Old news. You're over 15 years too late.
You should have invested in the stock.
Used to be stock symbol CCA its now CXW.
This stock was a favorite with day traders in the mid to late 90s. I made a lot with is stock. Still have about 750 shares in my Roth.
This stock was under a dollar at one time and now around $33/share after three splits.
Paid .48 cent dividend two weeks ago.

Wouldn't they target the largest population segment instead of one of the SMALLEST if it was all profit-driven, dopey?

This is why there are so few black CEOs and corporate presidents.....you crybabies can't get past your victim status and face reality.

Not really, salty piece of pork. It's better to aim in the most unemployed segment of society which less contribute to the system with taxes and consumption. They wouldn't be so much missed as the workers, piggy pal.

Unfortunately more investment is going into prisons than education. It's cheap labor and apparently recession proof; a veritable gold mine. 21st Century slavery is alive and well.

Since most backs are criminals, it's like picking up rocks from the ground. Very abundant, and easy money.
