Privately run Prisons, or anything, for that matter are more efficiently run. It is probably less costly as they are not Union.

I wouldn't go that far. As I've mentioned many times, compare Columbus City water and sewer to the privately owned variety. No comparison at all.

Sorry to inform you but that is so untrue. As a matter of fact the Union is suing because our Director has already retired from the State of Ohio is double dipping and has private interest in the Company that they want to contract. This is a money maker for those people at the top. They are making all kinds of money. Dirty politics again. The union is suing because of conflict of interest. Imagine that. They don't reveal the whole story. In all reality this is costing the State of Ohio more money.
