In a segment he calls "The Word," comedian Stephen Colbert analyzes the ramifications of recent news that Arizona is going to be yet the latest mistaken state that decides to turn its prisons over to for-profit enterprises. As you can read in my essay, The Evils of For-Profit, "Private," Prisons, our society should be in the business of creating incentives for responsible behavior where people use teamwork to be productive, and ensuring the rewards people have earned stay with them and are not sucked up by evil greed; governments should not empower businesses who profit by locking people up!
