Yes, do away with drugs and prostitution being illegal.  Don't lock people up for possession or selling (unless it's to a child).

Privatizing prisons has created a powerful lobby invested in having a steady supply of prisoners.

We also have a public prison guards unions and an industry devoted to taking advantage of prisoners.  Companies that have access to prisons to provide services to the prisoners and their families.

You're missing the point again Ruby. You're all wrapped up in upholding the corrupted system your country has become.

Craig Sickler gets it dead right and so does ahhell. you get ignored.

Billie, what are you talking about, "privatizing prisons?"  Aren't they all run by government?

No Ruby, you're not paying attention. Ask Craig how your fkd up prison system is soaking the taxpayer by making it all about profit.

Way too long to read. Is Sheldon trying to make a case for privatizing the prison system? Why not just say it's proven to be a bad idea? There! In a lot less lines than Sheldon's bullshtting the public at Kato.

Could you condense Sheldon's book into a line or two for us Craig?
