  •  Silly Bernie, jail is for us little people (0+ / 0-)

    We have a multi-tiered justice system and the average person is low on the totem pole. Of course if you happen to be black, you are at the bottom tier, unless of course you are rich.

    Increasingly, the mass of us are seen only as potential profit units for the private prison system.

    Cops are dirty and lie in court. Too many elected judges are on the take and get kickbacks from the prison complex (especially juvy judges). Politicians draft laws to make it easier to fill private prisons. State officials sign contracts actually GUARANTEEING certain percentage of filled beds. How exactly does one guarantee bodies unless it invents reasons to incarcerate?
