***PRIVATE PRISONS TO REMAIN EN VOGUE WITH TRUMP AS PRESIDENT

Feeling Rebloggy
Critics have long denounced private prisons in the US as unsafe, inefficient and at times, inhumane.
Those critics, who include inmates and activists, seemed to find a powerful ally earlier this year when the Department of Justice announced it would phase out its use of private prisons for federal prisoners. This wouldn’t mean the end of privately-run incarceration facilities (they’re also used by immigration authorities and states), but it was seen as a step forward.

Except, that when the first contracts came up for re-negotiation this fall, the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) quietly decided to renew them anyway. That decision, along with the election of Donald Trump, mean that the US is unlikely to see the use of private prison operators diminish any time soon.
