Student’s Name Professor’s Name Course Number Date The Prison Industrial Complex The nature of Prison Industrial Complex The term Prison Industrial Complex (PIC) is used to describe the system that serves the government interests that overlap with the industry that makes use of policing, surveillance, and imprisonment as a way out to social, economic, and political glitches (Diaz, 35). This kind of system does not only involve prisons; it is a conjointly reinforcing network of relationships among a variety of key players that exploits inmates. The structure of this exploitative system is centered on the belief that there are lives more valuable than others. The targets in PIC criminalization are minority groups from particular neighborhoods, especially the less affluent ones, young people, people of color, and the LGBTQ community. Immigrants are criminalized by PIC; it picks on the socially vulnerable species and makes them live their lives only trying to survive. The number of black people and women serving jail sentences is higher today than it has ever been in the history of the United States (Sudbury, 37). The custody facilities (probation, parole, prison, jail) in the United States have over seven million people; a number higher than the combined population of several states in the US. Inmates do not receive a decent training or education as they are supposed to when in prison and when they are released to the outside world and can hardly secure jobs, they are called failures. It is like modern day slavery where dissent is criminalized and the reason why one African American out of ten is stripped of the right to vote (Davis, Angela and David, 55). As
