Why are inmates so expensive in blue states? And that's not meant as a "look look blue states suck" way.

Quite sad and only getting worse. The prison industrial complex is quite powerful in America thats for sure.

Got to hand it to Louisiana, we are paying relatively little per inmate vs. the rest of the U.S. We also look like we are in the top third for money spent per student.

Wait a minute, do we have to give students 3 hots and a cot?

...or 24 hour security?

How are these expenses even comparable?

Disqualified due to the fact is that they use a combined education/incarceration system.

Primary education = minimum security
Secondary education = hard labor
Advanced education = solitary confinement.

Yea, it makes sense for inmates to cost more...

None of you are actually surprised by this are you?

Strong teachers and correctional guard unions, as well as costs to build and maintain prisons.
