IF PRIVATIZING HAPPENS OUR FAMILY & COMMUNTIES ARE IN DANGER THESE DANGEROUS CRIMINALS (RAPISTS, PEDIFILES, MURDERS) ARE GOING TO RUN THESE PRISONS THEMSELVES UNTRAINED PEOPLE DONOT KNOW HOW THESE CRIMINALS WORK, CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS ARE TRAINED TO KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THEM & KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR TO KEEP THEM WHERE THEY NEED TO BE "LOCKED IN" NOT ALLOWING THEM TO ESCAPE. OFFICERS PUT THEIR OWN LIVES IN DANGER TO PROTECT OUR FAMILIES, COMMUNITIES, AND THE VICTIMS FROM BEING REVICTIMIZED,ITS NOT ABOUT SAVING MONEY ITS ABOUT SAVING LIVES & JOBS,EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO TO BATON ROUGE & CALL ALL YOUR STATE REPS & CONGRESSMEN & LET THEM KNOW YOU WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN....GOD BLESS US ALL

PULEASE.....Wouldnt be privatizing it if the staff werent so damn lazy. Hard to run a prison when staff wont go to work, always calling in sick, etc, and the unions are fighting for the right to NOT WORK.

I myself hate privatization, but I do understand why things are going that way. MONEY...cant keep throwing good money into a endless pit.

As long as privatization can do it much cheaper, the Gov will privatize. Gov workers get up off their azz, come to work, do a full 8, then hit the gate, it wouldnt privatize.

These Hard working employees have worked 8 long hours, most don't get to hit the gate. They are locked in with the inmates for 12 hour days.

The only money going to be saved by this action is employee pay! D O C is still going to have to pay the going rate to house and maintain prisoners !!! This is one time money that Jindle is going to make off this deal!!!! It's prisons today! Tomorrow it could be where you work when the same shortfall occurs again next year in the states budget! Jindle has everyone snowballed!! He has the state in so much financial trouble that when it catches up after the shell game is over it will be a disaster ! Wake up people!! This snake oil salesman is slick!!!!!

if a private corp buys the prisons, look behind them to find out who really controls the corp. it is must probably the fed gov. who will use the prisons for confining the people of the u.s.

This is a no brainer. Jindal was elected by the citizens of Louisiana therefore the "employee". He is supposed to listen to the people, and not do what he wants. He's not supposed to represent special interest. Politicians tell the biggest most pathetic lies and tales when campaigning, then once in office, they could care less about the voters. Those idiots in Washington have by majority become millionaires while the rest of us work our butts off just to make a decent living. One day GOD has the final word, and rest assured it'll come, believe? don't believe? You will get to speak with JESUS about this earthly life.
