If people don't want to go to prison, DON'T do the crime.

These people violated crimes against the state or nation and should be punished by the same.

Banned, no. Used frequently, I'm not so sure.

Privatization does not work.

I don't like it. What people forget when they advocate privatization, is that profit will be made, and that profit comes at public expense. Another word for profit in that context is "waste". Money spent for zero benefit.

They are out to make money. Prisons get money from the incarceration of people. So they pay off judges to sentence longer and worse charges on people, among other ways to get more people incarcerated.

High recidivism also helps them, so they certainly aren't going to help the convicts reform their ways and become productive members of society.

It shouldn't be illegal, but it should be done either.

Whoa. De JA vu. I'll agree and say this again: "quit trying to legislate ever aspect of life!".

Persvd-in many cases, i'd agree. In this, I can't. If prisons become/continue to act as a business, we are screwed

Not illegal, but states are stupid that use them.

Taking away a citizen's freedom and removing him/her from society is a serious endeavor. It should not be a for profit industry. These are Americans, and it's their lives we're discussing.

Sorry. I misread the question and thought you were saying the reverse

Privatization of prisons intending towards a form of indented servitude with private corporations as the beneficiaries. Crime should be prosecuted and punished by the government alone.
