    and the mostly innocent, completely innocent and holy-hell-guilty keep filling the cells.

    Just as Mother Republicans promised their for-profit-contract-jailers they would deliver.  Mother Russia got nuthin' on that team of exile and incarcerate.  

    Only Soviet politico's didn't get political donations from these entrepreneurs, once they sent the dissidents, er, swarthy people to the for-cash-only stockades

    Nice profit, if you can get it from your Republican Representative.  

    Someone once asked me why do you always insist on taking the hard road? and I replied why do you assume I see two roads?

      well.

      Clinton did nothing during his term to stem the tide. On the contrary, the for-profit prison industry really took off during the 1990s.

      To Obama's favor, he has done far more good on the issue, and this is one reason the rate has come down somewhat.

      But he could do far more. As can local governments, at least in states that are supposed to be Blue.
