    For Profit Prisons is MORALLY WRONG

    Profits depend on POOR FOOD and LAX SECURITY!

    I HATE THIS COMPANY! AND I HATE ARIZONA FOR THEIR CORRUPTION IN SETTING UP THIS COMPANY!

    MAY IT FAIL COMPPLETELY


    Lets See, Morally Wrong. I guess my definition of morally wrong differs. I think it is Morally Wrong for half of these Animals America to even be allowed to take another breath. Many of those incarcerated have ZERO Human qualities and would Murder and Rape a Child just for fun, and they wouldn`t have a single ounce of remorse. Many of those Animals Locked up have Murdered and Tortured Raped Robbed and Ruined Thousands of innocent p[eoples lives and they would gladly do it again if given the chance. So Morally Wrong it is not to house these Sub Human Freaks for money, what is Morally wrong is to house them at all. Exterminate Them LIKE YESTERDAY.

    • Agree, but CCA depends on repeat offenders for their income and will do anything for this to happen. If you pamper inmates (ex), popcorn Friday, DVD weekend, pizza parties, fish fry, rap music in the rec yard, satellite TV, Air conditioning, special events, free medical and the occasional dirty officer who will blow any inmate in the prison or bring in drugs for quick$$$$ You really think these #$%$&ing losers are going out into the free world to get a job and pay bills??? keep on dreaming. Keep dirty Governors in office and I guarantee you CCA will reach new highs every 1/4. Politicians should not be allowed to own any stock involving the incarceration/treatment of any individual to include medical clinics and the like. I believe it is called a conflict of interest.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • You are right, a good size % of the #$%$___NG LOSERS are not going to find a job nor have they ever spent a single day of their lives in the Plus Column. These are Predatory Career Criminals who should see the light of day. But what about a good size % of the inmates doing way to much time for their offence just so the Governor and his Corrupt Pals can make Big Money.Someone with some authority needs to investigate the Prison System in the Good Ol Boy State of LA.

    • You have no idea how full of s-it CCA is, I have been a c/o for over 10 yrs. and never seen so much unprofessional behavior in my career. The victims these animals violated would scream if they knew how they are treated in these prisons. ex. popcorn Fridays, DVD weekends, Fish Fry, live music in the rec. yard, Cable TV, a/c dorms, honor housing units, etc.etc. The c/o do not even wear a badge to honor fallen Comrades. I will not invest in this BS not just because of the way they pamper inmates but by the amount of crooked politicians who receive thousands of dollars to promote this business. I do not care if you believe me or not but I would do some research on Google before I invest in this BS. You will find even Judges who have been under investigation for accepting money from their lobbyist to fill up their Juvenile centers. Leave corrections where it belongs in the responsibility of the State, it is also BS that they save taxpayers money, actually the free medical inmates receive is impeccable.

    • You are correct that many of them would kill for fun. But for the ones that actually want to do their time and start a new life and be productive, they cant. They get raped, extorted and beaten regularly. So lets either put them to sleep as you say or let them do their time....like men! But lets not let the really bad ones prey on the bad ones. And what does all this have to do with the fact that since privatizing prisons....our govt costs per person has skyrocketed. CCA promised privatization as a means to save govt money. They have not. So why should they be allowed to continue. A federal court should step in and demand renumeration back to the US govt by the private prisons so that they always,always cost the govt less than a public prison......as promised. Also, govt "business" should be earned. Therfore if rehabilitation rates do not increase yearly there should be finanacial penalties.And who cares about the inhumanity in other prisons around the world. Russia I have to admit is very inhumane but they have no gang problems or attacks on guards. They have huge 200 lb dogs walking around with every guard who walk always in sets of 3 or more! You mean we are too stupid to do that here? Why is it taking so long for both private and public prisons to find good rehabilitation programs? Watch lockdown and lockup on netflix, some are really trying, and some are bragging that they can feed their prisoners for less than they feed their dogs! No human deserves that. So as I said, either give them capital punishment and let his cellmate have more room, or make more effort at rehabilitation. I bet if a privatized group of computer whizzes like Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, and people with just a lot of common sense were put on boards of private prisons, the recidivism rate would plummet and rehab would go thru the roof. This aint rocket science. And its very sad the way they treat prisoners in otehr countries, yet in denmark and sweden, they are like country clubs.................and very little recidivism. Why cant we find a middle ground? And why cant the American people have a say in how things are run???? It is dispicable that prisons were privatized. But...it was worth a try on a small scale. Now that its proven to be a faiulure,why has Obama not even talked about it. I never heard anything!
