    It has everything to do with citizens taking personal responsibility for the laws they break. If they don't like prison life, don't break the law.

    You break the law everyday and you just don't know it...

    Saying:"If they don't like prison life, don't break the law" is pretty snooty in my opinion.

    Do you have any idea how many laws there are?

    If the government doesn't want to pay for prisoners, it shouldn't make up so many victimless crimes.

    Obviously, we're talking about felonies.

    I didn't know the War on Drugs was a liberal invention. Could have sworn it was started by a right wing commie hater like Nixon.

    The fact that criminals exist is completely irrelevant to the State being responsible for creating basic living standards in prison.

    Please give reasons why you think the State should be not responsible for maintaining the welfare of the prisoners in its custody, and that it's okay to pass the buck to a private corporation.

    No it is not. If you want a better society and not one where you imprision as much as we do for no apparent gains... you work through rehabilitation. If you want a punishment system, congrats... you got it and you got a nation who puts more of its population in prison than any other nation on earth.

    Stats strongly suggest that the public system isn't working.Prisoners per capita statistics - Countries compared - NationMaster

    Can a State government really prohibit a private legal business? Seems to be too much power.

    Private prisons are publicly funded and cost the state more than public prisons to run as well as being less effective.

    Even with that... they still fudge stats to make them look better than they actually are:

    The research, by the Arizona Department of Corrections, also reveals a murky aspect of private prisons that helps them appear less expensive: They often house only relatively healthy inmates.

    “It’s cherry-picking,” said State Representative Chad Campbell, leader of the House Democrats. “They leave the most expensive prisoners with taxpayers and take the easy prisoners.”
