The Prison Industrial Complex explained

It is a sick and twisted eugenics initiative, that utilizes slave labor, as a mechanism to subsidize megalomaniacal oligarchs. A consortium of multi-national corporations participate in this sharade of justice. The War on Drugs was created to do the same thing prohibition did: to control the market. This is no humanitarian effort,this is genocide at its finest. Take a look at this video for an introduction to this issue:

Our $39 Billion Incarceration Epidemic Explained in One Infographic

Started by Tara May 29, 2014. 0 Replies

If someone asks you what America does better than the rest of the world, a few things may come quickly to mind: high tech, entertainment, energy and fast food, for example. But there's another answer that's less cheery: The U.S. leads the world in imprisoning people. For petty crime, drug offenses or violence, no other nation in the world puts more people per capita behind bars than we do. When you add up federal, state and local prisons, immigration detention centers, juvenile facilities, military prisons, and Native American-run facilities, the U.S. has 2.4 million people locked up, according to the Prison Policy Initiative. For perspective, that's 1.5 times as many people per capita as the Russian Federation imprisons. States take the biggest haul, with 1.4 million prisoners, followed by local jails and, bringing up the rear, the federal government.…Continue

The Prison Industry in the United States: Big Business or a New Form of Slavery?

Started by truth. Last reply by Ra Jan 5, 2014. 3 Replies

By Vicky PelaezHuman rights organizations, as well as political and social ones, are condemning what they are calling a new form of inhumane exploitation in the United States, where they say a prison population of up to 2 million – mostly Black and Hispanic – are working for various industries for a pittance. For the tycoons who have invested in the prison industry, it has been like finding a pot of gold. They don’t have to worry about strikes or paying unemployment insurance, vacations or comp time. All of their workers are full-time, and never arrive late or are absent because of family problems; moreover, if they don’t like the pay of 25 cents an hour and refuse to work, they are locked up in isolation cells.There are approximately 2 million inmates in state, federal and private prisons throughout the country. According to California Prison Focus, “no other society in human history has…Continue

The American prison system is so massive that its estimated turnover of $74 billion eclipses the GDP of 133 nations.

The American prison system is so massive that its estimated turnover of $74 billion eclipses the GDP of 133 nations.Thursday, June 20, 2013 4:45 PMThe American prison system is massive. So massive that its estimated turnover of $74 billion eclipses the GDP of 133 nations. What is perhaps most unsettling about this fun fact is that it is the American taxpayer who foots the bill, and is increasingly padding the pockets of publicly traded corporations like Corrections Corporation of America and GEO Group. Combined both companies generated over $2.53 billion in revenue in 2012, and represent more than half of the private prison business. So what exactly makes the business of incarcerating Americans so lucrative?

Profiting From Human Misery... 'The United States, from 1970 to 2005, increased its prison population by about 700 percent'

By Chris HedgesMarela, an undocumented immigrant in her 40s, stood outside the Elizabeth Detention Center in Elizabeth, N.J., on a chilly afternoon last week. She was there with a group of protesters who appear at the facility’s gates every year on Ash Wednesday to decry the nation’s immigration policy and conditions inside the center. She was there, she said, because of her friend Evelyn Obey.Obey, 40, a Guatemalan and the single mother of a 12-year-old and a 6-year-old, was picked up in an immigration raid as she and nine other undocumented workers walked out of an office building they cleaned in Newark, N.J. Her two children instantly lost their only parent. She languished in detention. Another family took in the children, who never saw their mother again. Obey died in jail in 2010 from, according to the sign Villar had hung on her neck, “pulmonary thromboembolism, chronic bronchiolitis and emphysema and remote cardiac Ischemic…Continue

The Prison System Expands at Frightening Pace Following Declaration of War on Drugs

Started by truth Oct 30, 2012. 0 Replies

Sean Kerrigan, Contributor Activist PostIn the early 1970s, the prison population in the United States was small and was steadily falling relative to the size of the population. Experts imagined that in a few decades, the prison system as we know it could be successfully dismantled, but that began to change after President Nixon began the War on Drugs in 1971, resulting in a huge influx of convicts.The massive increase in prisoners has given rise to what some call the Prison Industrial Complex. Like its cousin, the Military Industrial Complex, government policy and spending continues to make private involvement in the prison system very lucrative. Taxpayer money is transferre

Amnesty International Denounces Torture in California Prisons --An interview with Tessa Murphy

“California Department of Corrections/PBSP-SHU policies and practices, have violated our human rights and subjected us to torture – for the purpose of coercing inmates into becoming informants against other inmates, etc., for the state,” writes one prisoner held in solitary at California’s infamous supermax Pelican Bay State Prison. This excerpt of his letter to the internationally renowned human rights organization, Amnesty International, is featured in Amnesty’s new report on the use of prolonged solitary confinement inside California’s ‘Security Housing Units’ (SHUs), entitled The Edge of Endurance: Conditions in California’s Security Housing Units.Read More HereContinue

Private Prison Management Company Offering To Buy Prisons For 90% Occupancy Rate

Private purchasing of prisons locks in occupancy rates By Kevin Johnson, USA TODAYWASHINGTON – At a time when states are struggling to reduce bloated prison populations and tight budgets, a private prison management company is offering to buy prisons in exchange for various considerations, including a controversial guarantee that the governments maintain a 90% occupancy rate for at least 20 years.The $250 million proposal, circulated by the Nashville-based Corrections Corporation of America to prison officials in 48 states, has been blasted by some state officials who suggest such a program could pressure criminal justice officials to seek harsher sentences to maintain the contractually required occupancy rates."You don't want a prison system operating with the goal of maximizing profits," says Texas state Sen. John Whitmire, a Houston Democrat and advocate for reducing prison populations through less costly diversion programs. "The only thing worse is that this seeks to take…Continue

Comment by Justin A Horne on July 30, 2011 at 4:58pm
@Burbia: Good to have you, hopefully we can chop it up about current events sometime. @James L. Lucas: All the facts that Malik stated about the Prison-Industrial Complex are valid; with that said, i believe this was a staged attack: a collaboration between "The New Black Panther Party" and the government. 1. The tape was flimed by a MCcain hired student. 2. None of the vanguards of the original Black Panther Party agree with this group. 3. If the media had a hold of it, it was an extemporaneous event designed to hold up both parties. Remember there is no dichotomy, one hand washes the other. It was just a reversal of Jim Crow Laws and the Poll Tax 21st century style. An agenda to start a race war, at which Malik and the New Panthers are in on. Its not coincidence that now they view Constitutionalist and patriot as terrorist now. That event was pre-text for a race war, attempting to call blacks nationalists terrorists--didn't work. Now they call patriots terrorist in order for one side to fight another. Divide and conquer. I like his cognizance towards the issue, but it doesn't negate my sneaking suspicion of him being a saboteur.

'Firstly, the people in the New Black Panthers were never members of the Black Panther Party and have no legitimate claim on the Party's name. On the contrary, they would steal the names and pretend to walk in the footsteps of the Party's true heroes, such as Black Panther founder Huey P. Newton, George Jackson and Jonathan Jackson, Bunchy Carter, John Huggins, Fred Hampton, Mark Cark, and so many others who gave their very lives to the black liberation struggle under the Party's banner.' -

'President Obama needs to clear the air. As a former law professor who specialized in voting rights, he is aware of how important even-handed application of the law is to election integrity. In 2007, then-Sen. Obama introduced a bill to protect Americans from tactics that intimidate voters. It also increased the criminal penalty for voter intimidation to five years in prison from one year.

"There is no place for politics in this debate," he testified before Mr. Conyers's committee in March, 2007. "Both parties at different periods in our history have been guilty in different regions of preventing people from voting for a tactical advantage. We should be beyond that."

One way to get there is for Mr. Obama to insist his Justice Department reinstate the Black Panther case or provide a full explanation for why it was dropped.' -

but was it not the New Black Panthers that stood  with clubs in hand to intimadate voters?  and was it not Eric Holder who refused to prosecute such.
