War On Drugs – The Prison Industrial Complex

Posted by Dave (The Void) on July 23, 2007

In a previous post, we looked at how America’s “War on Drugs” is used to wage war on Colombia. This 1999 documentary (92 mins, in English after a brief introduction in Dutch) shows the other side of the coin: an increasingly powerful “growth industry” built around locking up Americans – mainly poor, black Americans – and slowly moving towards a privatised police state.

Given recent developments in England, this is a very relevant warning on both sides of the Atlantic.
