A small community in New Mexico is learning firsthand the consequences of relying on corporate industry to fuel your economy. In the case of Torrance County, it’s the private prison industry. From a July 25 article by the Santa Fe New Mexican:

“The company that has operated a private prison in Estancia for nearly three decades has announced it will close the Torrance County Detention Facility and lay off more than 200 employees unless it can find 300 state or federal inmates to fill empty beds within the next 60 days, according to a statement issued Tuesday by county officials.”

The closure of the prison would mean a loss of about $700,000 in annual taxes and utility payments for the town of Estancia, which has a population of 1,500. Surrounding Torrance County would see a loss of around $300,000.

NEW PROOF: Drug War Is A Lie Designed To Imprison Americans

Published on 5 Aug 2017

DESCRIPTION - The War on Drugs is about mass incarceration. It's about destroying the activist community. It's about destroying the black community. But it was never about the drugs themselves--unless you mean the drugs that were consistently pumped into this country under CIA cover. Yet Attorney General Jeff Sessions is insistent on starting a new drug war, in spite of the fact it has had a profoundly negative impact on our society, from justifying the need for military weapons for local police, to filling our prisons with low-level offenders serving ridiculous sentences for the mere possession of drugs. And while the drug war continues to have repercussions for our American justice system, it gets little play in our mainstream media. Lee Camp reveals why the recent admissions from officials in the Reagan and Nixon administrations about the real reasons behind the drug war should sounding off way more alarm bells than it has.



We can send them some of ours....we have plenty that could use a stint....
