Incarceration In America: A Horror Story

pharmaceutical medicine that was approved by the FDA. It’s absolutely regarded as not only safer for consumption than tobacco, alcohol, and most prescription AND over the counter medications as it has been for centuries… but if you keep it illegal, people will get locked up, and if people get locked up – money is made. The entire system is centered around multi-billion dollar profits, just like all of American business power is. No matter what the cost, they’ll get away with it too (bailout, anyone?). When will this madness stop? When will people be treated fairly in the “land of the free?” No – as long as incarceration is treated as a business opportunity, it will continue screwing over the country like most other big businesses do every day.]]>

  1. The sentence was 6.5 years to 20years. They can actually keep him 20 years if they want even if he doesn't get in trouble. It is sad, I agree, if it is a privately own business and they can make a profit. I had no idea. I thought they were owned by the State of Michigan.

  2. It's possible I have his particular case incorrect, in terms of private prisons. The figure of the sheer amount of privately owned prisons in this country wasn't exaggerated though.
    Here is a list of state-owned prisons in Michigan. If the one he is in, or was in when they extended him, is not on this list – it was private. If he is in one that says "closed" on it, then it was reopened as a private institution.
