My sources have indicated that the inmates at the
CCA-operated South Central facility have taken over the
prison. This is the same facility that has had a number
of escapes over the last few months. I'll keep you
Can any PZN employees provide info on the alleged
prison take over? Can't find related news anywhere. Does
anyone have the telephone number. I would like to call
and see who answers the phone. Perhaps this just
bovine excrement which has been known to appear on this
thread (rarely!!!). G
Yes the sccf incident was blown out of
proportion. It did have all of the rumblings that could have
lead too a major problem. If the commish. of the St of
Tn had not have quickly and call in the state
troopers and a correctional officers from a locale state
ran facility this could have been huge. Why is it
that a cimpany is paid by tax dollars, they botch it
and the Tax payer get stuck with the bill again.
Your title serves you justly. 1st you fed false
information at the beginning of this new. I suspect the
information you are feeding now is also false. This is just a
speculation from the inside.
If there was a situation
at any prison (state or private) that was large
enough scale, the state troopers and other law
enforcement agencies would be called in. If you can't
understand this I will explain. Like us there job is public
safety. Regardless of the cost to whom we in the
facilities along with law enforcement have the public
interest as a #1 priority.
If you would like to
compare apples to apples, when a similar situation were
to happen at a state facility. The cost wouldn't be
shown for that of the highway patrol. Therefore, let
apples be apples.
Thank you for your post and
work from the inside glittergoddess. I hope I
remembered your name right.
I'm just a stockholder, not an expert in this
field but I don't understand the problem with State and
Local law enforcement assisting (at taxpayer cost) with
a prison break from a privately run prison. I would
assume that this occasional (very rare) cost is factored
in to the operator's contract. If prison breaks
became too frequent, the operator would "pay" for this
either by losing the contract or through their contract
Question for you - when a local
or state run prison experiences a prison break, does
that Prison's operating cost get hit with the cost of
State Trooper assistance? I'll bet not.
always, nobody's asking for preferential treatment. Let's
just make sure we are always comparing apples to
if you haven't noticed by now, there are a couple
of posters on this board who delight in spreading
nothing but negative info about this company. Of course,
it is unlikely that either of these folks own stock
in this company, and I would be willing to bet that
they don't have the guts to short the stock. They have
some agenda, most likely personal or political. Stay
with the stock, its' upside potential far exceeds its'
downside and you will be smiling all the way to the bank.

The PZN version of the riot story went:
"(Tuesday) was a normal day. Everything was calm. We're
still kind of confused," said South Central Prison
spokesman Greg Abrams. "Fifteen inmates staged a 'quite'
The incident report they filed with the Tn Dept. of
Corrections tells a different story. "Approx. 250 inmates
remained on the yard and refused to go into their units."
About 130 were encouraged to return to their cells by 2
rounds of CS gas and 2 "Bouncing Betties". An additional
round of CS and a round of OC split the remaining 120
into two groups. Two Bouncing Betties got 25 of one
group of 50 back into their cells. Betties were used on
the other group with all but 15 returning. Eventually
only 25 remained in the yard, breaking windows out of
the rec building. Another Bouncin Bettie took care of
So all the inmates are back in their "pods".
POD, not involved in the riot, refused to return to
their cells. After long negotiation, they returned.
This latter incident was what PZN reported to the
press. The rest was not important enough for us to
