This is good as this guy should have gotten the death penalty. "He who sheds the blood of man, by man shall his blood be shed." (Genesis) Just saved the tax payers big dollars and reinforced the values that built Western Civilization! Kill the killers and stop bankrupting the tax payers.

wait till they are privatized you wont hear any stories about this sort of thing
Well if you do any research on private prisons, you will see that there is more coruption in the private prisons. Plus you can get more drugs in there than you can on the street. Then there is the moral issue. Why should a corporation make money off of inmates. Should not that money be going to the victums of the inmates crime and not into Wall Streets pockets? I know for a fact that almost all of the staff in the prison system are upstanding professionals. All of who work in conditions that most would not even think of working in.

The private corporation is not making money off of inmates - it is making money by saving the taxpayers money. I know some CO's too, and I won't disagree that they are good employees, as far as I know of course. But at the same time, if private industry can do the job more efficiently for less money, the taxpayers are owed that. Now if the state were to require all inmates to work and 'earn their keep" then maybe we would not even need private prisons to save that money. I somehow doubt that a private prison is going to be able to require prisoners to work unless they pay them minimum wage.

Looks like the state benefits from having less inmates and the private companies profit from having more. If the state goes private I'll be interested to see if whoever gets the contract lobbies for tougher sentencing laws.

I don't know where your getting your facts, but you are way Off base !! Private Institutions DO get money for the inmates that are housed there. Trust me, the Taxpayers aren't saving much. When someone gets sick, stabbed in a private prison, they don't get Private healthcare. That goes to US.

Everyone thinks Private prisons are good, Guess what, their NOT. Over here in Youngstown, we have a Private prison & nothing but bad things have happened until the Feds stepped in. There were Murders, Escapes & Assault of Officers. Oh yah, it happened fast & furious. When you have a Private Prison, they don't have to follow the same Mandates a State Institution does. Guess what, more Lawsuits which are going to jam the Court system. You people better watch what you wish for..

Jason was a great guy! I don't blame him for what he did. The guy that was murdered was a registered sex offender. All of u haters out there don't even know him or why he did what he did. Let my best friend rest in peace already!
