Prison Industrial ComplexEvery politician serves those who elect him or her. Do you wonder why the Harper government has such strange things in its omnibus crime bill? Just stand outside a prison and watch all the supply trucks lumber through the security gates. Note the names on the sides of the trucks. Big companies. Then take a look in the parking lot and see little groups of guards talking together. You know they all want work next year. If there are no inmates, there’s no work. The guards’ union wants more prisons. Same with the big companies. No prisoners, no hot dogs to sell. Instead of Creating chainsbasing his crime bill on protecting the public and decreasing crime, Harper has opted to just give the prison industrial complex what it wants – more prisons and more inmates. How embarrassing that this is our government.
