Help crowdfund a relentless tsunami of FOIA requests into America's private prisons

Michael from Muckrock writes, "Investigative news site MuckRock is taking a broad look at how private prisons have rewritten state and local laws to ensure that they profit at the expense of inmates, staff, and taxpayers, even as reports indicate that promised savings are almost non-existent."

"We're currently running a crowdfunding campaign to pay for request fees as well as on-site visits to some of the worst abusers."

We love us some Muckrock around here, and you couldn't ask for a more ripe target than America's notorious prison-industrial complex, which has turned the USA into the world's most prolific imprisoner.
