PrisonIn Historic Shift, U.S. Government to End Use of Deadly, Costly, Negligent Private Prisons; Private Prisons May Be Phased Out, But Industry Leaves Trail of Bodies from Medical Neglect & Abuses; As Feds Close Prisons Run by Private Companies, Will They Do Same for Immigrant Detention Centers? Former Iran Hostage Shane Bauer: Claim That $400M U.S. Paid to Iran was Ransom Deal is “Absurd”; Dave Zirin: Brazilians are Fed Up with U.S. Olympian Ryan Lochte and Privileged First-World Tourists.

    GREAT program today! KPFA is the only place I have ever heard such in-depth reporting about for-profit prisons, D.O.J and immigration detention facilities.
    Shane Bauer is a hero for exposing what those of us who have been incarcerated, (as a result of the drug war) already know.
    Thank you, thank you, thank you, KPFA. I just made a donation.
    I want to know how to go about changing how San Mateo County denies inmates medication that is prescribed to inmates. This “policy” has been in affect for years.
