re: Some US prisons are banning books on coding VIEW POST


This is intentional. The for-profit prison system is designed to catch you and keep you.

Got a felony? What job can you hold now? Shit job. You are more likely to need to steal or deal just to survive. Of course you'll be back to prison.

3 strikes and you are a permanent resident. Now you are profit.

Even if you want to be better. The odds are so stacked against you.

We need prison reform. for-profit need to go.


As a European, the idea of for-profit prisons baffles me because of its pure evilness. Then add the idea that prisons should be punished centred instead of reform centred that the USA seems to fancy and you get things like banning books on coding.
