Should Not Privatize Prisons
Prisons should not be privatized because punishing criminal
activity should not be a profit business. It is not the place of private
prisons to administer punishments. It is the State or government that decides
who is a prisoner so they should remain responsible for them until
rehabilitated. It is wrong to put a private company that makes a profit off a
being in charge of prison operations because their goal is profit not
punishment or rehabilitation. Private prisons that cut costs may risk security
problems because cutting costs often means cutting corners. I think private
prisons are wrong, but .
Prison should not be privatized because the path to profit
is to treat human beings badly. Prisons are based on two things custody and
care. No one wants to cut corners on the custody aspects of a prison. Care is
the only part of a budget that has room to be cut. “One way for-profit
prisons to minimize costs is by skimping on provisions, including food. “ A
psychiatrist who investigated a privately run prison in Mississippi found that
the inmates were severely underfed and looked “almost emaciated.” During their
incarceration, prisoners lost anywhere from 10 to 60 pounds.” Citation
Steven Starkey
Additionally, there is a financial incentive to do a bad
job. The more effective a correctional facility is, the less need of its
services. If the inmates have educational, work release programs, medical care
such as anger management or mental health while locked up its less likely for
them to return to a prison after being released. There will never be a point of
not needing prisons; if there is better correctional policies and administration
could result in a reduction of need. Privatized prisons are disastrous from the
point of view of a profit organization.
Finally, the most
important reason Prison should not be privatized is the right to punish belongs
only to the state. The criminal justice system is the process by which legally
deprive human beings of their guaranteed rights. When someone other than the
state tries to deprive someone of these freedoms and rights, charge them with
crimes so if it is a privatized prison doing no different than one that
committed the crime.
Prisons should not be
privatized because punishing criminal activity should not be a “for
profit” business. It is not the place of private prisons to administer
prisoner punishments because it is the State government that determine who is a
prisoner and they should remain responsible for them until time has been
served. Private prisons that cut costs may risk security problems because
cutting costs often means cutting corners which is less
