    I think your love of authoritarinism and blatant hatred of those who don't agree with you is rather obvious and predictable. There are many countries that would fit you much better than America.

    If Louisiana is the prison capitol of the world why isn't Sen. David "Diapers" Vitter in jail?

    Why only liberals? Why not every stinkin' one of these mammalian abortions that dare call themselves "human". What, you're gonna' let some Vampire off the hook because he can pronounce one more syllable? Kill every freakin' one of them.

    Just my luck to be born in the least respected planet in the whole stinkin' galaxy.

    I bet this is one of those important issues, that actually effect people's lives, where the left and right see eye to eye on (example: Democrat, Republican Party, Libertarian, Green Parties all love for-profit jails)

    Yeah. I'm rather suspicious of that claim.

    This is so wrong it hurts. I have no problem privatizing prisons, but they can't be done on a head count basis. We would get better results if the prison's metrics were measuring reformed prisoners.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.

    No.

    It's because they're in the pockets of those who build and maintain the jails, and get government contracts for doing so.

    And the prison guard unions. More people being jailed means more people that need to be hired to guard them. Which means job security for them.

    And in the pockets of the judges who hear such cases.

    And it's nationwide - not just in Louisiana.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Except that people doing recreational drugs at home when they don't have any dependents to be responsible for doesn't make them a bad person, nor that they're doing a bad thing.

    We don't need more prisons. Rather, we need to decriminalize all the stupid **** that we put in prison for and focus on imprisoning in the prisons we have now all the hardcore sociopaths that little bull**** like dope users distracts them from.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    How long has this been going on? Privatizing prisons? I saw a movie about this several years ago, and remembered even then that this would be a terrible idea, such a huge opportunity for corruption.
