Why America Has a Prison Problem?Solved in One Chart
States like Florida guarantee X number of prisoners. Jerry Brown, of Super Blue California, is demanding substantial spending cuts in many places while lavishing money on and attempting to drown the Prison Industrial Complex in an avalanche of money. To build as many beds to house as many more people as they can stuff in ’em. What he cant build he proposes to engage in long term contracts with the out of state Prison Industrial Complex. Do you think Jerry plans on filling those beds? Do you think Jerry plans to get full use out of those long term contracts? That many more people in prison? We already hold the record, without a contender in sight. Its why we dont have money for so many other things.
