Up to $100,000 a year to house an inmate? YIKES
This sounds pretty reasonable considering the majority of tax paying civilians don’t come close to earning $50,000 a year in the states. Another huge reality you might want to face is that these jails are private – profit maximizing – institutions. So you the tax payer contribute your hard earned dollars toward a business empire owned by a few good old boys driving their Cadillacs to Augusta, and in return you get ……. safer streets?
Rehabilitation for dummies anyone?
