Once again you can come up with any thing you want the numbers to say. Lets talk about two or three facilities across the nation. Lets forget about the 79 they run without any escapes in the U.S. And one more thing CCA does house maximum and medium all across the U.S There are escapes from all institutions and governing bodies. But just as Al Gore has proven you can make anything you want out of the numbers. I have worked for both sides and their are good and bad on both sides. Both public and private are here to stay. The one thing that private does is promote competition to ensure that the taxpayers get a fair shake.
