Something about privately owned prisons and being incarcerated in another state seems very wrong. That's over 2K CA prisoners in Oklahoma in a privately owned prison? Yikes. I looked at the website of the company and you can invest in it! It trades on the NYSE
The failure of the US prison and legal systems is shocking. Here, Stephen Fry discusses the absurdity with fellow Brits.
In last night's live broadcast of Infowars Nightly News on http://www.prisonplanet.tv Alex Jones interviews Peter Schiff on the direction of the economy, the failure of government stimulus to create jobs, what will happen in the future as these policies go forward, and the Ron Paul campaign including the smear attempts.

US to Build Massive New Prison in Bagram
by Glenn Greenwald
As the Obama administration announced plans for hundreds of billions of dollars more in domestic budget cuts, it late last week solicited bids for the construction of a massive new prison in Bagram, Afghanistan. Posted on the aptly named FedBizOps.Gov website which it uses to announce new privatized spending projects, the administration unveiled plans for "the construction of Detention Facility in Parwan (DFIP), Bagram, Afghanistan" which includes "detainee housing capability for approximately 2000 detainees." It will also feature "guard towers, administrative facility and Vehicle/Personnel Access Control Gates, security surveillance and restricted access systems." The announcement provided: "the estimated cost of the project is between $25,000,000 to $100,000,000."
This is unbelievable. Ron Paul should be talking about this sort of thing to gain more support from the left and anyone with a half a brain.
