this ain't livin': Incarcerating Youth Shouldn't Be a For-Profit Business

Most chillingly of all, the for-profit prison industry has a vested interest in harsher sentencing and isn’t afraid of being transparent about it. It speaks of ‘disturbing trends’ like early release and reforms to sentencing laws to make them more humane, and actively lobbies against measures intended to improve the health and safety of inmates, let alone promote rehabilitation. When your business is incarceration, rehabilitation runs utterly opposite to what you want. You want more recidivism, because you want more repeat business at your facilities. These gross facts are skimmed over by states promoting more for-profit management of their prison facilities, and they’re rarely challenged in evaluations of what these firms actually do with their inmates.
