This guy is nothing more than a gossip columnist. Check out the other private prison boards. CRN, CXW , and this one WHC. He repeats anything he can dig up. He must be a ex con. I have eaten on a regular basis in the Kitchens of Both WHC and CXW. Have not had a chance at CRN yet. All are as good or better than we the taxpayers feed your kids in school. The inmates food have to be a certain temp. A certain portion as well as a certain caloric count. The prisons go as far to double the portions of inmates with certain medical conditions.
As far as the beatings, every time they plan a use of force on a inmate to enforce the rules, and the rules read as set forth by the courts. Force may be used to enforce the rules of a penal institution, prevent in a escape, to prevent bodily harm to a resident or employee or to prevent property destruction. It is always video taped. There are cameras in every housing unit with plenty of batteries and tapes. Yes the gaurds have to use force from time to time, these people were not locked up for singing to loud in the church choir. MCPRISON I URGE YOU ON THIS BOARD LIKE I HAVE ON THE CXW , AND CRN BOARD GET EDUCATED, GET A LIFE, AND ONCE AGAIN IF YOU ARE GOING TO REPOST THIS STUFF AT LEAST KNOW WHAT THE HE?? YOUR TALKING ABOUT. YOU EITHER HAVE BEEN FIRED FROM A PRISON, YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY IS LOCKED UP IN ONE, OR AND I THINK THIS MIGHT BE THE ONE YOUR ARE JANET RENOS BROTHER.
Many on the boards you have mentioned have come to that conclusion a long time ago. Mcprison is a union hack, scared spitless of the private sector. It is amusing to me that any negative news about the private sector in immediately posted by him on these boards. Occasionally, he post something of a minor nature, as a token gesture, regarding the public sector.
I worked the public sector for 32 years and the private sector for 10 years.
Nothing has happend in the private sector that hasn't happend many times over in the public sector.
When it happens in the public sector it does not get front page news space because generally the public views most civil servants as unable to hack it in the private sector because they have civil service protection and union advocacy no matter how poor a job they do.
If Mcprison began posting the daily problems that happen in public prisons on these boards, the union would have to pay him overtime because of the excessive time he would have to do so in order to complete the daily task.
He is nothing more than a scared civil servent afraid of the competition of the private sector.
He and his union cohorts know that private prison are here to stay. Must be galling and threatening to him and his peers in the public sector.
Mcprison, there is a passage in the scriptures that says, "Am I therefore your enemy because I tell you the truth?" I hope you don't look upon me as an enemy by telling you the truth from the standpoint of having worked in both sectors.
Amen brother, I don't have your exp. but i have limited exp. in the public sector and approx. 10 in the private one. There are good and bad on both sides. I am glad more people are calling for accountability on both sides. There is enough room for us all. I will say that the private can match up facility for facility any day of the week. Suprisingly all of my old friends that are state officials will tell you that as well off the record. But thanks again for speaking up. Mcprison you have been exposed for what you are once again. Thanks dmillwee
