    Yes, the for profit model is just too much temptation for corruption.

      Then, Shilo, how do you explain the corruption and abuse in government-run prisons? Pretend it doesn't exist?

    I don't see that it is a question of morality; morality has no relevance

    There is no more or less morality in having government-run prisons than in privately-run prisons. Considering the number of historical abuses and corruption in government-run prisons, perhaps it is morally wrong to NOT have privately-run prisons.

      No, little bed-wetter, the situation is not a moral one. The claim that they influence laws for profit remains unsupported by any facts or evidence. Your fear-mongering is silly, because it is based on fiction.
