Re: Prison labor booming in America...

the fact that you think convicted criminals are "slaves" is a fucking joke, right?

They cost us billions in tax dollars each year, the least they could fucking do is work for next-to-nothing.

So it's ok for a convicted criminal to make some CEO millions of dollars, and save them millions of dollars as well? If they are going to work, it should be doing government jobs. Not all prisoners are violent offenders, and yes they are working for slave wages. In essence it's slavery. The only positive is that they are learning a set of skills for when they get out of jail. However, that job is not guaranteed to them, and who is to say the same job will be available once they are out. Who the fuck hires a convict? How is that they can get a job in jail, but if you have bad credit, and not in jail you are looked over? We can start saving tax dollars by not placing people in jail for petty crimes, and then punishing them with ridiculous amounts of time in jail.

Re: Prison labor booming in America...

Can't view the video right now. Can you sumarise for me?

Crimnals should be used to do manual labor jobs.

This should be done to save the tax payers money. TRUE STORY!

I don't care what they make them do.

They can paint the fucking white lines in the road or something for all i care.

That's not quite how the privatized, for-profit prison industry works in the US.

Especially when a great many of the offenders were convicted of non-violent drug offenses, leading to the US having the largest prison population on the planet.

I heard somewhere that the U.S. has less than 5% of the total world population but yet we have over 25% of the total prisoner population. Prisons are big business.

And they're a self-sustaining big business, when the corporations fund lobby groups and PACs whose money benefits 'tough on crime' politicians who make more legislation that results in more of the already marginalized populations targeted by these laws becoming incarcerated.

The simple fact of the matter is that whether you are a violent offender or not, you KNOWINGLY committed a crime being in possession of or distributing narcotics. People know what happens when they commit crimes: they go to jail. When you go to jail, you work for pretty much nothing. You gave up the right to earn a decent legal wage when you committed a crime. Simple as that.

Do you really want to pay money to keep non-violent drug offenders in jail for a couple years? That's a waste of taxpayer money. Petty offenses can turn in to a big deal if repeated in certain states. It's bullshit. You shouldn't profit off of people breaking the law.

No, you don't want to hear my opinion on what should be done to criminals period. Although I have given it plenty of times before. Anyways, just because you did not directly harm another human being, does not mean that you did not commit a crime by putting a dangerous substance on the streets for personal consumption. Methamphetamine's, barbiturates, and ketamine are dangerous drugs and if you are involved in the process of creating them or distributing them outside of medical use, you are an accessory to the harm of another human being, albeit indirectly.

Yeah, the "Three Strikes" rule. I mean, you'd think if you were warned twice before you wouldn't be too stupid to do it again. It's no longer a petty offense if you keep on knowingly breaking the law.

So what should the prisoners do all day? Sit around their air conditioned cell and eat 3 times a day without paying their dues that they brought upon themselves?
