Ted Asregadoo speaks to Christopher Petrella about his article on Truthout entitled, "The Legacy of Chattel Slavery: Private Prisons Blur the Line Between Real People and Real Estate With New IRS Property Gambit." In this interview, Chris discusses how the GEO Group and Corrections Corporation of America -- two of the largest private prison corporations -- have changed their corporate status that could classify prisoners in their private prisons as part of the corporation's real estate holdings.
