Wells Fargo's Prison Cash Cow

What on earth are we doing by making prisons into for-profit ventures? Does this not encourage legislators to make laws that fill them and require more to be built? Already, 1 in 100 Americans are in prison -- and 1 out of 9 blacks! Overjailing means big bucks to the prison owners, as well as the feeder companies that provide food and servcies to inmates. Corrupt much?
