Why does our government allow private prisons to contribute to judges reelections ?
This is a payoff for filling them and is a conflict of interest. This is going on in nearly every state that has private owned prisons. There have only been one ring stopped in Pa because it was children, and another in AZ because too many people knew. Thousands of non violent alleged psych patients sit in prisons for years waiting evaluations. In same states prisoners have worst punishments in different counties, when the state law should be equal. It is a huge ring of keeping prisoners longer to to "Milk The Cow",where taxpayers are the cows.Sheriffs, judges, wardens, & the owners reap $$
I agree that this is a conflict of interest, but so are government agencies doing sue and settle cases with liberal NGOs to legislate via lawsuit settlements when Congress wouldn't pass regulations.
