YOU DECIDE (pick two):
1. Should private prisons be able to lobby for legislation that can ultimately lead to harsher punishment for citizens and increased profits for their company? Why or why not?
2. Should local, state, and federal agencies outsource the responsibility of meting out punishments to the private sector? Why or why not?
3. If research later suggests that indeed private prisons are more efficient and cost-effective, produce inmates with lower recidivism rates, and have better qualities of confinement than local, state, or federally run facilities, would you support the idea of making all correctional facilities private? Why or why not?
