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 ?


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...

wiki - Kids for Cash Scandal


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.


Ya...it's called being bipartisan....shocking


Doesn't alter the point of OP.

HOCUS POCUS

But Vonnegut thought we would outsource to foreign corporations...not much of a stretch, mind you.

Vonnegut was a prophet as were many socialist-leaning commentary writers back then. Adding "Hocus Pocus" to my must-read list now ("Slaughterhouse-Five" is actually next on that list).

Good reference, by the way!

people are so easily fooled .
Back when i was young they were not even called prisons .They were called rehabilitation centers .
Why you may wonder ? well a guy robbed a store ok so lock him up .Difference was tehn They made him learn a trade .
They made him pay back what he stole .They made it so he saved the extra money wile in jail so when he got out he wasnt broke and made sure he a a place to restart life .
Funny thing was being rearrested again was MUCH MUCH rarer .Simple most who do crimes ethr are despret
or just live a life style that promotes crime (( gettos anyone )))
Just locking them up the way we do now heck when let out they are pennyless and many have no place to go .
You have created a revolving door which is of corse excatly why they stopped the doing the old way
what is even funny is they got you on the band wagon . So having done lots of stupid thing in your life how many if had been know would have put you into this system that YOU KNOW now every one has condemned you for LIFE .
18 and life is over because you smoked and sold or worse she was 16 and your 18 .
well teh heck mite as well be what they call you because tehre is NO otehr life you WILL EVER have now .
And you love it .

one another note what good has it done teh Victim to just stick teh guy in jail ?
dude steals your car proceeds to rage it wreck it . Now you lost work your out a car and have going through all teh strees of courts and what not .
so hes stuck in jail now for 9 months (( feal better ? ))
Same thing dude steals your car wreks it is put in jail and givin a job taht makes money the tears are you get payed for teh car lost time at work and teh jail gets 25 % for feeding him .The other 25 % is saved for when he gets out .
and taht is teh DAY he has payed every dime YOU LOST because of his crime .
Now its so expensive to steal a car taht no one wants to and the VICTIM gets REAL justice and teh crimial gets gets a trade and place to go and is much much less likly to commit a new crime .
Now i am sorry to say even though thsi would work so well with 90 % of crime teh other 10 % no way teh VICTIM can ever get justice murder cant be payed back rape cant be payed back and so many otehr crimes just cant be payed back .
The worst of the worst all you can do is jail them (9 and wile killing tehm sounds like justice it can never be .
because it only takes being wrong once ( wrong guy ) and you are teh murder .
having said all this the jails would still be HALF as many or even less . But hey no moey in taht and much less of a reasion to rage .

I think that's a very strange direction to go with this? How exactly does a President create criminals, since it's the law enforcement in concert with the courts that determine the population of prisons?

Enforcing existing laws is not exactly a radical notion, in fact lax enforcement is radical.

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.


I think your confusing what the office of the President does and can do? The Stock Market is for all intents and purposes gambling and it appears they are gambling on private prisons being profitable.

The real controversy should be why did the previous administration NOT enforce the laws as was their duty to do? The Administrative Branch of government does not have legislative power and is bound by a duty to enforce the laws as passed and written. To do otherwise is a direct violation of the oath of office.

I of course said not a word about whether crime was up or down and I was responding to the article you quoted.

My real thought is that the private sector has proven time and time again, they can do the same things the government can do for far less money. A desirable thing in my estimation, unless a person is actually for wasting money and the horrible job that government agencies do when they do it themselves.

Trumps claims? Ask Trump? I mentioned I'm not a Trump fan and I'll add to that I went third party, so maybe I'm not the one you need to engage in a Trump bashing campaign with? As with all Presidents in my lifetime, there are things I agree with them on and things I do not.

Vonnegut was an amazing man. I always wondered if his experiences being in the firebombing made him what he became,or if he would have been so insightful even without that experience. And of course I love his writing style.
