Video by @MyCuentame: Lost, Abused & Neglected For A Profit

September 16, 2011


Guillermo Gomez-Sanchez is a 50 year old legal resident with a mental disability. In 2004 Gomez was detained because of a dispute at a grocery store over a bag of tomatoes.

Guillermo spent 2 years at a private CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) detention facility – the corporation neglected to report his medical condition.

CCA profited close to $90,000 off of Gomez’ incarceration, and ensured greater profit by failing to disclose his mental disability effectively leaving Guillermo trapped for 2 years. In 2010 CCA CEO Damon T. Hininger received $3,266,387 in total compensations.




It’s time to put an end to the private prison racket. How many more are suffering lost in a system that values profit over justice?
