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 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.
