Am I the only one disturbed by the idea of a for profit federal detention center? I guess I'm just behind the times, we have private armies, private healthcare, private intelligence services. What's the government for now, just doling out contracts to campaign contributors?

Oh, no you're absolutely right. I'm just against the idea of private prisons in general, not singling out Wyat other than it was the topic of this discussion. There's just something unnatural and dystopian about there being a profit attached to incarceration. I'm not against locking people up, I'm just against the idea of anyone (short of the prison staff) making a buck off of it. Did you catch that judge in PA a few months back who was taking bribes from a prison company to sentence juvenile offenders absurdly harshly to keep their camps in business?
