Thumbs up Anonymous Takes Down Corporate Prison Website

Anonymous strikes again! This time the target was a website run by the GEO group (formerly Wackenhut Corrections). The attack was part of a national protest against privately run prisons.

Quote:
"While most folks are suffering under the economy, many billions of dollars are being funneled into this sinister conniving alliance of capitalist and statist forces," stated a message on the hacked site. "What they did not figure into their plans was a determined effort to shut them down."

Protesters throughout the country declared a "national occupy day in support of prisoners" last Monday. The #occupywallstreet tag also was listed at the top of the defaced GEO Group site on Friday.
Did you know that these prison corporations are now demanding that governments keep prisons at 90% occupancy? If they don't they still must pay these corporations as if they were 90% full. So this just encourages the Police State to lock up more innocent people, like marijuana patients, just so these corporations can keep making enormous profit from the misery of those sentenced unjustly.

And once such contracts are signed, how are Gov'ts supposed to reduce their budgets, with such an absurd guaranteed handout to the Prison Industrial complex?

I always thought there was something very unseemly about private companies running prisons - to make money from incarceration.We don't have it in the UK,but it has been mooted.

The oligarchy in this forum should be used to enlighten people. I post stuff and it gets little to no views, let alone replies. Use your power for good #Lulz

Corporations exist to make money . So it's in their best interest to keep these prisons for profit filled to capacity . It's a breeding ground for corruption and injustice . And longer and longer non violent prison sentences . Remember the cash for kids debacle , in which two Pennsylvania judges were accused of getting kickbacks from privatley owned juvenile correction facilities to send kids there ? It should be a clear warning of where "privatization" leads .

Another part of this that hasn't been mentioned yet. These corporations will have a built in growth plan, so these prisons will continue to get larger and larger over time, not because there are more prisoners, but because profits dictate growth is mandatory. So keeping a 90% full status on an ever growing prison model will have people doing ten years for j-walking eventually... Gotta keep those investors happy at all costs.

The whole prison industrial complex is disgusting, nothing short of modern day slavery. Prisoners are payed 10 cents an hour to make products that private companies can sell on the open market as away to compete with China and other counties industry has moved to. Making license plates for the state your imprisoned in is one thing and can be seen as a way of paying back to society for your crimes, and the money that taxpayers spend to feed and house a prisoner. But paying them slave wages to produce goods for a privately owned company that then sells the goods to corporations like walmart for huge profit is illegal unless you have the right lobbyist in your pocket. The war on drugs ensures a steady flow of workers, kind of like what used to happen in the south when the cottons ready, get the cops out to round up some prisoners, put them on a chain gang and watch the money roll in.
