An important look into the corrupt judicial/legal system which exists throughout America today, which sentences nonviolent drug offenders to private prisons, because a poor and/or homeless person is worth nothing, but a prisoner in a privatized prison is worth $40,000 per year to a corporation. This was more damning as they ruined the lives of too many children. After viewing this, try to read the author, Jack London's essay titled: How I Became a Socialist. Then read The New Jim Crow, and research Don Siegelman's unjust carceration, along with the jailing of John Kiriakou.
