If this company has any more violations, fine them 50k. Maybe that will get their attention. I am against privately owned prisons because this can happen. I want Ohio to raid them monthly with no notice to keep them honest. I have written to Kasich and some members of our assembly urging them to never sell another Ohio prison. I know of a young man at Lake Erie CCI who is miserable after one month there. He didn't tell me why. Most inmates are afraid of revenge by the operators if they make complaints.
