The Prison–industrial complex (PIC) (and…there IS a Prison Industrial Complex) is the rapid expansion of the US inmate population through the political influence of private prison companies and businesses that supply goods and services to other private AND government prison agencies. Such groups include corporations that contract prison labor, construction companies,surveillance technology vendors, companies that operate prison food services and medical facilities, private probation companies, lawyers, and lobby groups that represent them.
The prison-industrial complex is perpetuating a flawed belief that imprisonment is an effective solution to social problems such as homelessness, unemployment, drug addiction, mental illness, and illiteracy.
These prison owners (who are NOT interested in punishing or rehabilitating criminals or reducing crime rates) can use their expanding pool of SLAVE LABOR to further deepen the pockets of well connected individuals.
The drug war and the war on terror are the IDEAL COVER that keeps the masses not only NOT rejecting the PIC notion, but WHOLE-HEARTEDLY supporting it!
If you question the nefarious actions of Prison Kingpins, just let FTM (Follow the Money) overrule your Media desensitized minds. Because the desire for monetary gain has, whether you believe it or not, led to the growth of the prison industry and the number of incarcerated individuals.
This video encapsulates the DAMAGE having such a system can have on REAL PEOPLE who love and miss their family when the unjustified incarceration is employed!
