California signs private-prison deal

SACRAMENTO — California has signed a contract with private prison contractor Geo Group to lease space for 1,400 inmates in overcrowded state lockups.

The company announced the contract early Monday morning, even before Gov. Jerry Brown learns whether federal judges will grant his request for a three-year delay in the courts’ orders to cap the prison population. The governor’s lawyers have asked judges to make their own decision by Friday. Full Article

    This will not end well. The private prison industry’s ridiculous notion that they are entitled to profit and prison population levels runs counter to the public’s interest. Just look at what’s been happening in Florida with the judges who were just convicted and sentenced to 60 years for selling minors into the prison system when they should have gotten nothing more than probation.

    Then they use those profits to lobby lawmakers for tougher sentencing guidelines to keep those beds filled and their profits high.

    It’s time to get money out of politics.
