    Are private prisons the answer?

    While only a small portion of the overall prisons in the United States, they have become a blight on corrections facilities as a whole. In this episode, the team discusses some of the issues seen with privatizing prison, and wrestles with the dilemma between favoring privatization and the outcomes seen in the current way in which private prisons treat inmates.

    Many people find it easy to brush off poor treatment of inmates because of their criminal history. However, in some of the prisons we look at, people are starting to question just how far it is alright to go in order to save a buck.
