End of Private Prisons

In today’s most exciting news, the Justice Department has announced that they will end it’s use of private prisons! That is gigantic news for us prison reform activists as the privatization of prisons has lead to a dramatic increase in violence, depression, and recidivism, in addition to a decrease in inmate safety. Good job, Justice Department!
