If such is ban, don't you think it will cause unemployment in the country? There might be reasons responsible for action though.

Gee, it is surprising to learn of private prisons. I have to agree that it is good business but bad for the society. Over here the national penitentiary is the major source of illegal drugs. What more if the prison is private huh.

There are definitely pros economically; ethically, it's highly debatable. I would love to hear what are the prisoners' opinion about this matter.

There is no concept of private jails or prisons in India. Criminals are all kept in the prisons by the Government and they are given jobs if available , depending on the conduct and the qualification they do have.

Prisoners are paid 2 dollars per day. It is still a punishment after all.

Aren't they should get lower sentence if they show good behavior?

I think it's a good idea to put prisoners to work and let them earn. Unfortunately, greed leads to exploitation, and I'm pretty sure that those private prisons don't want to lose all that money just like that.

Corruption is everywhere. I'm sure there are several powerful individuals will quietly try to prevent this from happening since it's bringing money.

I am really surprised to know from your statement that people are ready to become prisners by the choice? I think they are the ones without any Morales... and they don't even deserve what they are getting there!

There are a lot of government services that are privatized. The postal service and the prisons are the two that come to my mind immediately. I have used the public post office and privatized postal service. They're both about equal in reliability for delivery.

As for privatized prisons? I think one could debate that there are better and possibly cheaper ways to punish people who commit non-violent crimes. Personally I don't like the idea of privatizing prisons. Prisons are a public service. A public safety service at that. To me there are some things only the government should do. Like ... collect taxes, securely lock up people who violate the law, and maintain a military force.

Prisons should NOT be viewed as business opportunity. It's about crime and punishment. It should be an opportunity for service to the community. The person who committed the crime upset the peace and dignity of the community. They owe the community some sort of restitution.

Why doesn't the Government Law Enforcement Authority make the offender wear an ankle bracelet, pay their own bills, sleep in their own house, buy their own food, and perform some sort of community service?

Seems to be a more fitting punishment. That's my opinion. :crazy:
