A Thinker (Female, 29-35) asked:

Who funds our prison systems?

A friend of mine seems to think prisons are not funded by tax dollars but by private companies.

I was so baffled by her statement I couldn't even respond to it!

Update: June 25, 2012.
I had no idea some of the jails/prisons were privately owned... But I knew our tax dollars were in there somewhere.
