(KRNV Reno)   Private prison corporation CoreCivic makes profit by keeping man who hadn't had a court appearance or seen a lawyer in solitary for nearly a year, refusing to contact court and neglecting to tell U.S. Marshals that they'd forgotten about him   (origin.mynews4.com) divider line

I recommend federal kidnapping charges, and conspiracy.

Private prisons have to go. If keeping people in jail makes you money, corruption is guaranteed.

Along with confiscation of assets.

This.  For everyone in the chain of command all the way to the top.  All the guards assigned to his cellblock, all their supervisors, and the prison administrators.

Plus, cancellation of all federal and state contracts for breach of service.

/Death penalty for the company.

Seize the company, all assets and throw them in their own prison.

I'd like to think I could do a year in solitary in exchange for the payday this guy is about to get.

Private prisons bribe judges to send children to prison so they can make money.  Private prisons are pure evil.

It's even worse than making money off of sick people.

If he had contact with other detainees, he wasn't in solitary confinement.

Unless he had contact with them during his mandatory 1hr a day out of his cell.

Not that he will collect more than $100k, but it would help.

It makes it less horrific....  I am surprised this contact didn't result in the "jailhouse lawyers" giving him remedy options.  Of course if the guards were actively undermining his rights, chances are they would confiscate letters or other means of communication to try and alert the proper authorities.
 
2021-05-29 3:53:26 PM  
I hope the lawsuit is enough to bankrupt this company.
 
2021-05-29 3:53:56 PM  
But serious question. Isn't that kidnapping?

Private prisons are stupid and should be banned.

There seems to be a lot of problems going on with this. The US Marshals arrested him, so they knew he was in custody. They transported him from California to Nevada, so they knew he was in custody in Nevada. Somehow, they never once informed the courts "This guy is here for his case and can be scheduled as necessary."

I mean, how does the US Marshal service pick someone up and the courts (of which they are part of) never gets notified that the guy is detained locally and can be brought over for court any time as needed?

How is everyone and I mean EVERYONE involved in this not under indictment right now.
Wow, this country is a f*cking shiathole.

Republicans want to privatize everything.
The bizarre part is they've convinced their poor and lower middle-class followers this is a good idea.

Next to "businesses have fiduciary responsibility to their shareholders," private prisons are one of the dumbest ideas ever.

The punishment for this kind of shiat needs to outweigh the potential profits by so much that these people are in fear for their very life if they do this.  Not just massive fines, which should be so large that the business ceases to exist, but prison time for everyone involved.

One of the problems with our corporate system is it shields the people at the top from civil and criminal liability.  This needs to change.

Eric Holder and President Obama were so right when they called for abolishing private prisons.  Of course Trump and his despicable Attorneys General, Sessions and Barr supported these terrible institutions. Private prisons have no place in a humane society. But I guess our society is not humane.

Maybe they did.

The court only knows he's there. Its the jails duty to bring him there.

You make it sound like that's a flaw of our capitalist system?  Why can't a guy simply profit off of kidnapping?  I thought this was America!?

Gyrfalcon: The court only knows he's there. Its the jails duty to bring him there.


The jail brings him when he has a court summons.

I mean, my local jail isn't privatized and they only bring inmates up when they have court dates. They don't randomly bring people upstairs into the court room to just ask the judge what is going on with the case[s].

It's the court's job to schedule the appearance and summon him.

Is it? In the thread it says the Marshals just went and got him after he wrote the Federal Public Defender.

qorkfiend: In the thread it says the Marshals just went and got him after he wrote the Federal Public Defender.


The fact that the judge immediately dismissed the case is a hint that they acknowledge it's their fault and that it's an immediate speedy trial issue that they can't overcome.

Not if you cooperate with the US gov't. Then it's just sparkling oopsie.

Real kidnapping is done by bad guys, and prisons are run by good guys. Easy to tell the difference.

Not only is "disappearing" someone like this not only a US crime, but a recognized international crime against humanity as well?

I have a friend who was arrested on totally bogus charges and kept in solitary for 6 months. It drove him absolutely mad. Like, actually insane. He did all sorts of gruesome things to hurt himself just because they'd have to get him out of there to see a doctor. He was basically Renfield from Dracula.

Slightly more humorously, I have another friend of a friend who spent a lot of time in solitary. The experience kinda erased his self awareness and he got so accustomed to being alone with no one watching him that he's permanently stuck in "Alone Mode." He can't stop rubbing his dick. No matter who's around or where he is. He's not getting any pleasure out of it, it's just some kinda Tourette's-esque compulsion.

Anyway, make solitary confinement a severely heinous crime on the books, then pay this guy all the money ever.

So we should start with a summary judgement against the CoreCivic for not less than 1 years revenue or 1.905 Billion.

The courts and the US Marshalls should also be prosecuted for this injustice. Someone on their end had to have the trasnport scheduled, and ways to notice the missing phone calls and/or emails, as well as ways to enforce that they didn't pursue.

It's almost like a "qualified immunity" allows people to continue behaving badly, since there are no consequences for that behavior.
