    private prisons get their meat?

    Private prisons have to be up in arms about this. Oh the humanity!

    The pipeline of bodies for these authoritarian jerks is drying up, if less and less young men are being charged and incarcerated.
    And don't you know the shareholders in these private prisons are going to be bitching about all those black and brown young men being free from incarceration.

    Can't make their blood money when people are free and not behind bars.
