The Prison Industrial Complex

FB_IMG_1460696662980

There isn’t much to say about this.

For-profit prisons means everyone who stays in the US goes eventually (unless they are white.) The cops will get you for something. Maybe you were being brown in a car. Maybe you were being brown walking. Maybe you were being brown at school.

It doesn’t matter.

If you stay in the US long enough, the cops will get you for something.

That is what for-profit prisons are all about.

We need to get the folks in fro drug convictions out. We need to stop having quotas of people we want to put in. We need to fight this huge system constructed solely to profit off ruining lives.

The US needs to stop locking everyone up.

We have the highest percentage of our citizens in jail of any developed country. We force the prisoners to work, and we hardly give them food or medical care. It’s not okay. It’s inhuman and unnecessary.
