The privatization of prisons is a major problem in this country because those companies lobby lawmakers to pass laws that result in larger prison populations, which is just a dollar sign to them.

Those companies are fricking predators.

The easy one is, they shouldn't have committed a crime in the first place.

For the record, I don't believe that stance, but there ya have it.

May need to redo the FAU Fight Song:

We'll fight, fight, fight at FAU
There's riots in paradise
We'll fight, fight, fight at FAU
The new kid's in for 10 and he's looking mighty nice

And on the FAU Owl message boards the prison jokes have already started:

quote:

Instead of giving away shirts, the FAU student government will give away striped prison jump suits


quote:

Team will walk onto the field with Fulsom Prison blaring


quote:

Have to wonder whether this will make it easier or harder to recruit football players with criminal records. If a player from a larger school gets arrested, can a judge order him to transfer to FAU?


quote:

The stadium will now be call the longest yard??..
