Privatized prisons is one step away from slavery. Private prison corporations trade their stocks based on how many people they lock in a concrete box. Using someone as free labor and treating them like property is one of the most inhuman things we have done as a country. and to think, most people who are in jail are in for simple drug possession. we turn productive members of our society into slaves simply because they possessed the wrong drug at the wrong time. People wonder why we make up so much of the global prison population, good old chrony capatilism at its finest

i agree with privatized prisons just being a new form of slavery..but look at it this way,,there is money to be made holding inmates..so countys like bledsoe county build jails to hold them..what happens is the tax payer foots the bill,is tricked into even bigger jails because of rising crime,,crime rising because local jails are housing state inmates for profit.putting locals on probation for profit..dont want locals taking up a paying bed..crime is rising and we have not seen the end of it..if you agree with bledsoe holding inmates for profit,,yes you agree with slavery..thats simple.

Crime keeps rising because they keep unjustly imprisoning people. Most people dont deserve to be thrown into such a terrible situation. It is not in anybodys best interest to lock somebody up unless its absolutely neccassary. Prison should be a last resort for those people who keep hurting someone else physically or sexually. We should not be flooding prisons with marijuana smokers or any drug users for that matter. It is classic favoritism when someone is arrested for smokn the one drug that never killed anybody but yet beer is advertised like soda

I kinda agree with you. I could go down and say that you were on my property and you assaulted me and have you arrested. Then you would have to pay 200 or 300 hundred dollars to get out of jail...hire you an attorney, come to court two three times for this charge and I don't have to show up, then it will be dismissed and you will have to pay court charges on top of that. This place is crazy..it is just a joke. On top of that, I might have charges on file and them not bother with me, I could keep the sheriffs dept busy for a long time by just making charges against people. They should be arresting the people that are selling the drugs instead of the ones buying it. They are on every street corner. I've never bought any, but I know a lot of people that sell them and they get them legally from a doctor.
