I went to school with the daughter of the owner of G4 Systems AKA Wackenhut. They LOBBY HARD to push for more prisons. Since the prison system was privatized these guys want more laws and more people in prison. Lots of people are having their pockets filled and jobs are being created by these private prisons.
Doesn't change the fact that it is costing this country a fortune to house non-violent and violent criminals a like.
