Prisons for Profit

Jacob Spellis | September 11 | 10:15 - 11:15 AM | Room 2592

Mass incarceration makes millions for those who own and operate private prisons. These entrepreneurs lobby to enforce laws and impose stricter laws to put and keep people in prison. Many of these prisons have removed rehabilitation services, such as GED, training programs, or Alcoholics Anonymous support groups, opting instead to overfill their prison in favor of profit. This documentary and discussion about a private owned prison for profit in Ohio will educate the audience on the impact of privately owned prisons for profit.
