I have read several stories about judges and the for profit prisons working together with the complementary kick back. Everything from adult to juvenile systems. There is no punishment to great for those who break the public trust IMO.

That is great news, now let's hope that he gets a steady diet of big bubba's man meat for the next 28 years, he deserves no less.

Nice. Enjoy the hell you have bestowed upon others so graciously. I do feel like those who were bribing him should have to do a bit in one of their prisons as well.
Scumbags is an understatement. This is why we rot at the core.

I think he should have been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
it was found that upwards of 5,000 young men and women were denied their constitutional rights, and therefore all of their convictions were dismissed and were summarily released

The only way to stop this is to pass a law that any detention facility can not be for profit. It must be a non-profit prison and set pay scales, i.e. no million dollar bonuses, etc. and any surplus is given to programs that help citizens with problems like addictions, homelessness, etc. You would see this sort of corruption dry up imho.
