Supreme Court Justices Blast The Corrections System

Supreme Court Justice Kennedy explained that his home state, California, spends $35,000 a year in mates in prison but only spend 3500 dollars a year for a student in the school system. This is backwards thinking and we need to reform how and who we put into prisons. We also need to figure out how to get private corporations out of the prison business because they have huge lobbying groups that resist any efforts to change things of course.
