We need to put an end to private prisons like CCA. They will be working to see more people sent to prison so they make money. Their money will buy our lawmakers. It is a sad day that America lets a group like this get a foot hold in our justice system. I can only hope that enough people will see them for what they are and force our states to stop this practice, and end supporting a business that makes money off of other's misery--deserved or not.
