Stop 20 year Prison contracts with mandatory 90% occupancy, stop CCA

The Corrections Corporation of America stands to make billions of dollars if they can get states to sign a 20 year contract saying they will maintain their prisons at 90 percent capacity. Community organizatons are concerned that this will obligate states to fill the prisons to 90% occupancy thus forcing communities to increase arrests for marijuana possession, jay walking, debts, loitering and other non violent crimes. The American taxpayer will pick up the tab for this.
