JAIL? Going someplace because you have committed a crime.
Some very serious crimes. IS IT JUST ME?
So many people are out of work, desperate and homeless and hungry- AM I insane to think that some people are thinking - wow - this looks like a pretty sweet deal for a couple of years. I know of people who went to jail got educated (FREE- Karla ring a bell) come out
smarter and wiser and even healthier!
I don't think our jails have to be like jails in other places (see below) but at the same time COME ON! Jail should be a place you do NOT want to go. As for a private prisons - I've been reading about this of course and cannabis - in the USA many people are sent to jail for small amounts of Cannabis - a private prison is a business and lets just say when you send someone to jail for - say Cannabis - business is booming! Thank God - there are NOT so many murders -but they have to fill those jails somehow. Or else No $$$
But here it is and it went up pretty quiet- VERY quiet in fact - I know people who have a penthouse apt near by and had no idea the jail was that close. I also have family in the area and I worry about them. FACTS are facts.
Note I drew a black man especially - When you are born into being poor - you have fewer options. The number of African Americans in prison - for something as simple as a cannabis possession is APPALLING! *
FACTS. For a plant. It's all about business. http://www.straight.com/article-119340/stephen-harper-opens-door-to-prison-privatization or read this: http://www.insidetoronto.com/news/local/article/1250425--new-mimico-jail-is-ontario-s-first-prefabricated-prison
Yes of course, who do we have to thank for this step in Canadian History? Not a proud moment in my opinion. The one and only Steven Harper. To add insult to injury - we had most of this fancy prison shipped from Atlanta! USA - Nothing like helping our own economy Steve!
If you are not worried about this new private prison... lucky you. Let's hope you behave.
If they send a cannabis grower to jail for plants - *longer sentence than a pedophile what's next? When It's all about $$ I m sure they will come up with more creative excuses.
