Profitable Public Prisons
Recently there has been a lot of talk on the fact that many of Americas prisons are now run by private firms who are making billions of dollars by through their facilitation. We as the public pay companies to keep 'dangerous' people locked away for our own protection but is this enough. These firms do very little to actually reform characters and this is evident by the large number of re-offenders. I suggest that we no longer higher these firms, prison should be public. We should also force labor upon inmates. Prisoners should produce enough goods to pay for the cost of their detention, prosecution etc. They should also contribute towards the wider society which is being sustained outside, because ultimately they will return to this society.
