Because freedom can't protect itself
The elected officials here in Mississippi should be held responsible for allowing CCA to continue to operate her without any accountability or regard for human life or the communities these prisons operate in. From Christopher Epps (MDOC commissioner) to Bennie Thompson to the NAACP (who serve as his watch dogs and protect him in exchange for fundraising help) to the governor and lieutenant governor (who received campaign contributions from CCA) to Illanda Pimpton to David Jordan and Robert huddleston. How many more people have to die in these private prisons here in Mississippi before anyone decides to do ANYTHING?
Thank you ACLU for keeping Mr. Carithers story out there. Hopefully his death won't be in vain
Well what are we going to do about it!!!! It's past time to get this travesty SHUT DOWN. Stop trafficking in human lives, it is no different from slavery. Human bodies equaling profit.
