"A great deal of what China, those President Buhari’s men that have been accused of corruption will also be bold enough to submit themselves to the @officialEFCC, Former Governor of Ekiti State, Miss. on Aug 16 2018 Rogelio V Solis—AP/Shutterstock CoreCivic prisons arent nearly as brutal labor camps under convict leasing or the early 20th century state-run plantations but they still go to grotesque lengths to make a dollar I saw this first hand when in 2014 I went undercover as a prison guard in a CoreCivic prison in Louisiana There I met a man who lost his legs to gangrene after begging for months for medical care CoreCivic was often resistant to sending prisoners to the hospital: their contract required that outside medical visits be funded by the company Educational programs were axed to save money To keep costs low guards were paid $9 an hour and oftentimes there were no more than 24 on duty armed with nothing but radios to run a prison of more than 1500 inmates The prison was incredibly violent as a result In a four-month period in 2015 the company reported finding some 200 weapons 23 times more than the states maximum security prison I knew one inmate who committed suicide after repeatedly going on hunger strike to demand mental health services in a prison with only one part-time psychologist When he died he weighed 71 pounds Private prisons according to a 2016 Department of Justice Study are consistently more violent that their already-dismal public counterparts Yet while we went through training to become guards we were taught that if we saw inmates stab each other we were not to intervene "We are not going to pay you that much" our instructor told us Our job was simply to shout the words "stop fighting" thus protecting the companys liability and avoiding any potentially costly harm to ourselves Our job after all was to "deliver value to our shareholders" "If them fools want to cut each other" the instructor said "well happy cutting" In May 2017 I bought a single share in the company in order to attend their annual shareholder meeting As I sat and watched Terrell Don Hutto and other corporate executives discuss how their companys objective was to "serve the public good" I wondered how many times such meetings had been held throughout American history How many times had men be they private prison executives or convict lessees gotten together to perform this ritual They sit in company headquarters or legislative offices far from their prisons or labor camps and craft stories that soothe their consciences They convince themselves with remarkable ease that they are in the business of punishment because it makes the world better not because it makes them rich Adapted from AMERICAN PRISON: A Reporter’s Undercover Journey into the Business of Punishment by Shane Bauer Published by arrangement with Penguin Press a member of Penguin Random House LLC Copyright 2018 by Shane Bauer Contact us at editors@timecomIn second place was Campbell with 480 votes just a bit more than half Armstrong’s totalNonetheless just minutes after Armstrong graciously accepted the decision of voters – one he had agreed to abide by even if he’d lost the vote – Campbell was announcing from his convention booth that he’d continue on to the primarySchneider no doubt smiled when he heard the news Both Campbell and Armstrong have plenty of campaign cash and the race will likely turn to mudslinging very quickly Schneider will be able to watch from the sidelines larding his own campaign coffers for the general election and chiming in to the intra-Republican food fight when he sees an opportunityIt’s a bewildering choice for Campbell In announcing his primary run he invoked both Rep Kevin Cramer and Gov Doug Burgum each of whom successfully eschewed the vote of convention delegates to find victory on the June ballotYet Campbell lacks the charisma of the former and probably doesn’t have pockets nearly so deep as the latterHe does have a whiff of desperation about him that neither man was plagued byLet’s remember that Campbell wanted to run for governor in 2016 but stepped aside for Burgum He wanted to be Lt Governor but was overlooked He initially campaigned this cycle for the US Senate but stepped aside when Cramer entered the raceNow he’s desperately clinging to a primary bid for the House after being soundly thumped at the convention by ArmstrongTo what endIs Campbell really trying to do what’s best for his state and his political party Or has this campaign funded for the most part by his own cash according to the most recent campaign disclosures we have available become an exercise in vanityCampbell has never struck me as a public servant I’ve always perceived him as an office seeker A man for which politics is a social club as opposed to something more aspirationalIt has seemed to this observer as though his quest for Congress was more a very expensive application to perhaps the most exclusive club in the nationCampbell at this point just seems to be doing what’s best for CampbellThe Federal Government has stated that the delay in the commencement of Ogoni clean-up exercise was to build a solid foundation for the project and avert a situation where money is spent without the people feeling the impact of such spending It would be recalled that in June President Muhammadu Buhari had through his deputy Yemi Osinbajo launched the “Clean-Up of Ogoniland” at Bodo Gokana Local Government Area of Rivers State But since the flag-off the project has experienced hiccups Speaking on the delay yesterday the Minister of Environment Amina Mohammed pointed out that every arrangement concerning the project including the issue of funding has now been perfected She spoke in Abuja at the 10th Anniversary of the National Oil Spill Detection and Response Agency NOSDRA explaining that: “Talking about Ogoni spill all resources have been made available and the money has been released But if you do not have structure in place the money will go into the ground and people will not feel the impact “It is important for us to put together structure and make sure that we have a solid foundation Who is in the office who is the budget manager and how are they recruiting All of these were not taken care of in the past But this time we believe that by the time we leave people will see result It will be a continuing process and in the next few months people will be seeing some of the issues that they had not seen” Mohammed maintained that it was important for militants to stop further oil spillage by putting a halt to bombing of oil facilities to assist the exercise According to her“In Nigeria there is a growing level of oil spill incidents caused majorly by illegal bunkering artificial refining oil theft and armed militancy These activities occur mostly in facilities located on land and swamp areas However some incidents do occur offshore and with the increased interest of operators to pursue exploration and production in the deep offshore there is the need to step up the level of preparedness to effectively respond to challenges that may be presented by oil spills in the marine environment “The devastating impacts of oil spills on the environment health and livelihoods of our rural and urban communities have led to land degradation loss of lives destruction of habitats loss of biodiversity incidence of diseases poor sanitation as well as the depletion of national revenue base “The need to prevent and rapidly respond to oil spill incidents whenever they occur can therefore not be overemphasized To this end the Federal Government is committed to dialoguing with state governments opinion and youth leaders in the Niger Delta region to find a lasting solution to these incessant attacks which deplete our national revenue base and degrade the environment” education,Some candidates who sat for the ongoing 2018 Unified Tertiary Matriculation
