Louisiana School-To-Prison Pipeline Breaks, Spilling Hopeless Kids Into Swamp

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

America’s crumbling infrastructure took another hit today when the pipeline connecting Louisiana’s schools to its prison industrial complex busted, sending poor, under-educated teens sprawling into empty swampland in Avoyelles Parish.

The clean up effort has already started, as teams of state lawmakers, local sheriffs, and concerned stockholders are searching the swamp in an attempt to recoup these valuable natural resources.

Louisiana, the prison capital of the world, depends on young inmates with long sentences to fetch millions of tax dollars for privately owned jails. Ironically, the pipeline was also built with cheap, shoddy prison labor, which lead to the environmental disaster. In the meantime, authorities are asking school districts and judges to do all they can to step up production in the state’s time of need.
