    • 1. Get Tough on Crime
      Warehousing of human Beings
    • 2. This is the Florida version of ‘get tough on crime’
      A recent article in The Gainesville Sun said that “a person could end up serving more time for drugs than for manslaughter.”
      There are no anomalies or inconsistencies in the law.
      Case in point is Hope Sykes: It is easier to entrap a 19-year-old female for selling 25 OxyContin pills than addressing the addiction process with its educational component. The payoff is a mandatory 15-year sentence.
      This 15-year sentence will cost taxpayers $379,417. A portion of this money will be recycled into the campaign coffers of our elected officials.
    • 3. This is the Florida version
      The average inmate goes to prison for a five year sentence
      The average inmate has a 6th grade education
      60 or so percent of the inmates have an addiction
      It costs the state of Florida $140,000 to send a women to prison for five years
    • 4. Florida has the third largest prison system in the nation
      Authorized positions 27,736
      Inmates in prison 102,232

    • 10. Think in terms of spending 12 to 16 hours a day on a shelf
    • 11. Imagine spending between 12 and 16 hours a day for five years on this bed
      The freestanding single prison bunk has a pan of 10-gauge steel, which measures 27" by 79 3/8". The pan is perforated with eight 1" diameter holes for ventilation. Front and rear flanges are formed up 2", with a 1" hem. The legs are 18" in height 2" x 2" x 1/8" steel angle iron. The bunk comes with a 2" by 2" 10-gauge steel plate with a 1/2" hole for bolting it to the floor. The anchors are not by PSI, but all joints are welded and ground smooth. Finishing for this metal prison bunk bed includes chemical degreaser and rust-inhibitive primer. There are many bunk options available, including an open front shelf, an under bunk drawer, and special order custom sizes.

    • 13. Imagine this is your mattress for five years
      Cover:  1.) Calendared*, flexible, PVC film.2.) Color – unobstructed window clear3.) Thickness 20 Mil4.) Anti-microbial: MRSA Resistant5.) Anti-mildew6.) Abrasion Resistant – ASTM D3389-05: Over 6000 Cycles.  Our Competitors advertise 190 cycles.  This means our vinyl is 34 times more abrasion resistant.7.) Flex Fatigue: In House Testing shows our material withstands 8 million to 12 million flexes. Our Competitors' material withstand approximately 1 million flexes.  What this means to you is a much longer service life with our material.8.) Cleans with mild soap and water.Fiber Core:  1.) 3 Inch Firm 1.5 lb per cubic ft Recyclable,    Earth Friendly  Polyester Fiber2.) Vertically oriented3.) Hypoallergenic

    • 20. January 17, 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower warned the U.S. of something he described as a threat to democratic government.
      He called this threat the "military-industrial complex", a union of defense contractors and the armed forces. 
      Eisenhower said, in part:
      "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist."
    • 21. 50 years later a new threat has arisen out of an attempt to combat a threat to our nations well being
      Prison Industrial Complex
      Prison
      This threat is the "military-industrial complex", a union of defense contractors and the armed forces. 
      Eisenhower rephrased, in part:
      "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists, and will persist."
