              JJIE caught up with Alex Friedmann, associate editor of Prison Legal News, to talk about the increasing use of private prisons by local, state and federal government. Relying on private institutions to provide extra capacity discourages progress on real reforms to reduce the prison population, while putting profits first can adversely impact prison conditions, Friedmann argues. “It’s not an issue a lot of people know or care about unless they’re personally impacted by it,” Friedmann said, who spent years incarcerated in both private and public prisons. He sat down with JJIE after speaking on a panel on the same topic at a conference in Ohio last month.

                There are more than 6 million Americans under custodial supervision…That is more than Stalin had in his gulags and they are available to worky worky for cheapie cheapie. If you pay the right judges, like those two justices in Pennsylvania, you can get them to send you young fresh workers every day. This is part of an awareness campaign on corruption in politics and finance. These videos are conceived and produced by Naked Emperor Productions, Inc.

                • Florida Lawmakers Defeat Prison Privatization Amid National Push for For-Profit Jails

                  The Florida State Senate has defeated a measure to privatize at least 27 prisons, which would have created the largest corporate-run prison system in the country. Despite the vote, Republican Gov. Rick Scott could still privatize the prisons through executive authority. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, the number of prisoners being added to privately run jails is out-pacing the overall prison population by 17 percent compared to 4 percent. The nation’s largest operator of for-profit prisons, Corrections Corporation of America, recently sent letters to 48 states offering to buy up their prisons in exchange for a 20-year management contract, plus an assurance that the prison would remain at least 90 percent capacity. We discuss prison privatization with two guests: Florida Republican State Senator Mike Fasano, who led the charge against the bill to handover South Florida’s state prisons to private companies; and ACLU of Ohio spokesperson Mike Brickner, co-author of the report, "Prisons for Profit: A look at Prison Privatization."
