    but I turned off my cell phone to save $$. oh, the irony.

    great diary. in CA prison where I was, you'd typically spend more on the 'connection fee' than the actual phone call.

    LA County Jail also makes lots of profit on phone calls, but the state prisons are an even bigger ripoff.

    not to count the profit they make off of overpriced food items in commissary.

    no one is concerned too much about the prison population, so it's the perfect profiteering opportunity. i'm always hearing about the strength of corrections stock on wall st.

      ...something to make a venture capitalist chomp at the bit.

      I wonder if 100 years ago any imagined people would be looking to prisons as profit opportunities.

      And all I can do is shake my head at what that says about the kind of society I live in.
