Why stop there? Why not privatize the rest of the criminal justice? Let’s create for-profit courts and for-profit law enforcement, too. What’s the worst that could happen?
John Kasich is the only person who could see how our “tough on crime”/“truth in sentencing” laws that the Republicans passed in the 1990s has lead to a dangerously overcrowded prison population in Ohio that is bankrupting this State and lament the lack of a profit motive in it all…
So, apparently, John Kasich thinks it’s wrong to have inmates providing prison labor at the Governor’s Mansion, but it’s okay to have inmates provide prison labor for for-profit, private corporations.
Incarcerated by Incorporation. That’s John Kasich’s “New Way.”
