    Here in Texas we understand the political benefits of Private Prisons. The investors are guaranteed a big profit because the Government can keep those private prisons 100% full and will pay whatever the government dictates. As our government takes campaign bribes from the republicans who own the private prisons, those owners are assured 100% occupancy, and hundreds of thousands in profits for each prisoner. I can't imagine that Netanyahu's supporters will allow this ruling of the High Court of Justice to be overruled by executive fiat. Prisons are the perfect vehicle for political corruption.
