Well, I guess alot of investor's are making a bet more people will be incarcerated under Trump. Understandable with his rhetoric about crime at an all time high and of course the "bad hombres". Add on top of that, the recent announcement, that the Federal Gov will not respect State rights when it comes to Cannabis Regulation Laws, CHA-CHING!

NEW YORK — Thanks to President Donald Trump, America’s private prisons appear to be entering a gold age. The stocks of the two biggest private prison operators — CoreCivic (formerly know as Corrections Corp. of America) and Geo Group have doubled since election day. CoreCivic is up 140% since President Trump won in November; Geo Group has risen 98%. For all the talk about how good President Trump has been for big banks like Goldman Sachs, he’s been even better for private prison investors. The reason private prisons are back in vogue is simple: President Trump has made sweeping promises to crack down on crime and illegal immigration. Wall Street calculated quickly that President Trump’s rhetoric is likely to translate into more people behind bars. And that means more profits for private prisons.



Yay! Muzzle the press and increase prison populations. All aboard the Trump Train!!!!!!!!!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I think we all saw this coming. We are the leaders in imprisoning our citizens.

Yeah, total bullocks. Why do you think weed was legislated to begin with. Why do you think the feds are going to go against state sovereignty now? Suddenly, conservatives don't care about state's rights?

The press has not even been remotely muzzled? Would you rather criminals roam the streets committing more crimes due to overcrowding in prison's?

I'm not actually a Trump fan but facts are very cool things.

It is all well and good when they are locking up criminals, the grey area is when they need to fill those positions, will they create criminals for that purpose ?

Muzzled as in not allowed to ask questions, not invited to meetings were WH select press are. Saying that they are the enmey. No I'm not a fan of criminals "roaming" the streets. Crime is at a low statistically. Private Prisons are NOT the answer.

Yes facts are very cool. Do you have any that support Trumps claim that crime is at an all time high? I'd love to see them.

Exactly. Private Prisons are run like hotels. Can't have an empty bed
not good for the stock holders.

We've all heard of stories like these...

Incentivizing incarceration was a bad move then, it's bad now. More and more stupid laws will be written and more misdemeanors will turn into felonies.

Going after weed is a complete waste of political capital. I highly doubt things will change.

Trump is an avid supporter of the Police State:

Here are some articles showing how Trump is in favor of a Police State:

Seriously, Salon and the Atlantic! That is about as self serving an attribution as my suggesting you read Breitbart for balance.

Surely you're not touting the wikipedia link as proof that a Republican administration is pro-incarceration. Those scum sucking bottom feeders in the Kids for Cash scheme were Democrat Judges.

I do read Breibart,

My point is like his predecessors, Trump supports the expansion of the Police State.

If Trump is truly for the people, he would have dismantled the Police State but instead it is growing in power.
