Why focusing on private prisons won't end mass incarceration - Vox: "Hillary Clinton has announced that, under pressure from both immigration and racial-justice activists, she's no longer accepting direct donations from private prison companies. The money she's already gotten from them — $133,000 — is a drop in the bucket of a campaign that's raised $28 million in the past three months alone. But in the Democratic primary, the private prison industry has emerged, by consensus, as the villain of the mass-incarceration story." 'via Blog this'
