Liberal policy gone wild: Washington D.C. approves paying criminals not to commit crime

First it was getting rid of mental institutions which led to an explosion of homeless and mentally ill people residing in prisons.  Then it was a push to get rid of the death penalty which leaves violent criminals languishing in jail for decades at the expense of the taxpayer.  And now in a move that once again shows that liberal legislators can’t fathom how to truly solve problems, the city council in Washington D.C. unanimously passed a new bill to provide money to criminals in the hopes that it will deter them from committing crimes.

Crime and prisons are the new economy

As more and more incarceration is being outsourced to private companies, an interesting dychotomy is occurring between the state, and these entities.

Companies are MANDATING that states arrest more poeple, and ensure quotas to the prison system.

The nation’s largest private prison company is offering cash-strapped state governments to buy up their penitentiaries and manage convicted criminals at a cost-savings. But there’s a catch…the states must guarantee that are there are enough prisoners to ensure that the venture is profitable to the company.
Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) has reached out to 48 states as part of a $250 million plan to own existing prisons and manage their operations. But in return CCA wants a 20-year contract and assurances that the state will keep the prisons at least 90% full. - All Gov.com

Just like the old cliche regarding life insurance, where sometimes a person is more valuable dead than alive, so to is it becoming more profitable to the state when someone is incarcerated than free.
