Prison: Last Week Tonight

In this video, John Oliver talks about the prison system and situation in America. He mentions about healthcare in private prisons (starts 8:24) and highlights several problems and consequences of privatising prisons (e.g. safety of inmates).

“The key problem with running prisons as businesses, is that prisons, are then run as businesses.”

“Private prisons are bad yes, but the whole system just seems fundamentally broken.”
