I am a victim of a for profit District who accesses 30% fee on fines (debt) in order to prop up their lagging budget. I am still being punished with threat to life and purse because of inability to pay more than I have already paid, which included a 9 month prison sentence.

Most non-violent criminal's have a drug addiction. It would cost much less to treat a persons drug addiction then to incarcerate them. Therefore saving had working people from paying more in taxes.

I'm writing my gov paper on this and after a night of research it is astoundingly obvious that Private prisons are catastrophic on an individual level, a community level, and a national level and the only people that private prisons help are the rich businessmen controlling the industry who continue to fatten their pockets at the expense of the general public.

Private prisons have no interest in reform; just filling their beds.
