Oh my Lord, your kidding.Its all about money and jobs for the fortunate:
ADX USP Thomson, IL: $58.7 million and 1,158 positions (749 correctional officers)
$15 million to renovate the Thomson Correctional Center for high security federal prison use. $43.7 million to begin activating ADX USP Thomson (2,100 beds) as an administrative-maximum high security facility. ADX USP Thomson is expected to reduce crowding in high security facilities from 59 percent by 43 percent by the end of FY 2015…
All this for about 400 folk, smh...
Peace In sister noor100 ,
When I read this, it makes me think about Europe with the concentration camps. I feel like history is repeating itself. I don't why, specifically, this would be my first thought, but for some reason, it is. There was a video that I just watched in this thread, and it was said that prison are something like 'public housing' and the government supports it for this reason, and it's like another form of welfare that they can control even better than the ghetto.
And it does seem like that to me too. It seems like they are tryig to control poor people who they don't want to be apart of the system and be free, so they are making prisons to punish them for BEING BORN. They wont' education ethnic people properly so that they can strive to live and be apart of the human population peacefully, but they mis-educate them and set them up to be ignorant of how to strive to live at peace, and when they make mistakes...they will be directed to the prison system....forever, that is if a higher power doesn't step in and help.
And they made prisons under other presidency's too, just as significant, but i'm sure they will highlight this later and target the Obama presidency.
