aw0099, mcprison has been posting good and bad articles for a long time. Certainly I'd rather not see the bad ones but I'd rather see them than not. I appreciate mcprison taking the effort to inform us regardless of his/her intention.
We all know the media loves to pound on private prisons when ever it gets the chance. The Jane Pauley story of CCA's Youngtown was a real eye opener for me on of bad and crooked the media can be. We all know bad stuff happens because it's a thankless job guards perform and they are only human. Some we know go over-board, that's human nature too. Public or private.
IMO, what many fail to understand is it's all about costs and providing quality service. Sure you could throw 10 times more money at the prison system and quality would be up, but the reality is schools, etc.. need money too. I feel the media tends to miss that point and I see the message "hidden" in their articles that $ should not be an issue.
I've never seen mcprison state an opinion either way, other than to post articles. Please aw0099, I know it frustrating to see this stuff, but accept for what it is, IMO.
