The plan:
1) Isolate those that are sick in their cells.
2) Since a percentage of prisoners are sick, reduce guard force
3) Bribe Pay Inspire local police to increase enforcement to increase population to replace any who expire

Put that bony finger away Liz.  If you got elected, you could tell everyone what to do.  But you got rejected, so be quiet.

They'll keep prisoners on the books for six months after they die.

She's still a member of the US Senate which has oversight over the Bureau of Prisons.

Quarantine, otherwise known as solitary confinement.

...profit?
 
2020-03-10 12:29:14 PM  
Locking people up should never be a for-profit enterprise. It should cost everybody something, always.
 
2020-03-10 12:29:35 PM  
At least for-profit prisons have an incentive to keep convicts alive. Regular prisons? Those are going to be killing fields.

My mom is retired. She used to work providing health care for prisons. (Not private prisons mind you). The first thing she said regarding this was "thank god I don't work there anymore". She had to fight tooth and nail for a prisoner to be given rabies shots after he was bitten by a bat. (Fight prison administration that is - she worked for a private company that was contracted to provide healthcare).

Just like health care should never be for profit.

Funny, we keep rejecting you, yet you're still here. Take your own advise.

She sits on the Senate Committee that oversees public health, among other things. It's her constitutional duty to oversee the executive branch, which includes the prison system. So I guess my question is, why do you hate the constitution?

Among the questions Warren and the other senators are expecting BOP and the three contractors to answer are: Details about the policies and procedures prison operators intend to put in place to prevent the spread of the disease; plans for how individuals in segregated housing will be monitored for infection; and what they intend to do in the face of staffing shortages should guards and other employees become ill. They also want to know what steps are being taken the improve sanitation behind bars, and how they propose to quarantine people who become infected.

1. The inmates are in lockup. What more do the libs want?

2. If Big Roy starts coughing up a lung, we'll hear him. The whole jail can hear him snore.

3. What staff shortages? You think we're gonna pay them to sit home doing nothing for two weeks? That's socialism!

Besides, we pay the best wages in the tri-county area. Someone tries to playact being on his deathbed on account of a cold, we'll find someone else by tomorrow morning.

4. The inmates will get their toilets back when they stop making pruno in them.

5. They're in lockup. What more do the libs want?

For those who think Obama didn't do anything useful, he was in the process of getting rid of private federal prisons. Trump immediately put them back. https://www.npr.org/sections/th​etwo-wa​y/2017/02/23/516916688/private-prisons​-back-in-mix-for-federal-inmates-as-se​ssions-rescinds-order

He's hates that the Constitution does not prohibit uppity women who speak publicly instead of staying home making sammiches.
