    The FBOP will not award the contract without
    state and local authorization. This is clearly stated
    in the RFP. CCA can't obtain this authorization in
    CA. This is one reason why spec prisons are so risky.
    This stock will not see the bottom at $3 as others had
    predicted. PZN will become a penny stock before there is any
    sustained positive movement.

    I once posted something about Hutto's connection
    to the ACA and got a response from him. Just goes to
    show that insiders are here and spreading the PZN/CCA
    gospel. PZN is not alone in its quest to reach new depths
    - other corrections companies are also taking a
    hit. Its already an unfashionable stock and then you
    have the conflicts of interest and lack of integrity.
    Maybe Doc can sell the rights of this story to
    Hollywierd and get stockholders some of their money back.

    Besides the tax liability that would be incurred
    and the re-structuring costs, PZN would also be in
    danger of defaulting on some of its loans since they
    were provided on a REIT basis.

    Another option
    could be for PZN to drop Doc's companies (i.e., the CCA
    brandname OPCOs) and become a real REIT.

    RALEIGH (AP) - Authorities
    today sought a convicted murderer who
    during a visit to a New Bern doctor outside the
    prison where he was being held.

    Glenn E.
    Jacobs, 37, who is currently serving time for armed
    and being a habitual felon, escaped from the
    doctor's office about 3:15
    p.m. Tuesday, state
    Department of Correction officials said. He was
    the supervision of armed guards from Pamlico
    Facility when he escaped. The Bayboro prison is a
    unit run by Corrections Corp. of America.

    The escapee still was at large this morning, said
    Tracy Little, a
    Correction Department

    Jacobs was convicted of second-degree murder in
    1988 in Cumberland
    County and sentenced to 20
    years in prison. He escaped on Feb. 27,
    1992 and
    was recaptured April 3, 1992. He was paroled in

    Jacobs was first sent to prison in
    December 1983 after being convicted
    in Cumberland
    County of larceny and receiving stolen goods. He was

    sentenced to three years in prison and paroled in January

    Jacobs' latest escape came while he was serving a
    sentence of 119
    months to 152 months for a 1996
    conviction in Wake County.

    In September 1986,
    Jacobs, formerly of Hope Mills, shot and killed
    Kenneth Locklear Jr. inside a mobile home, Cumberland
    sheriff's deputies said.

    The FBOP is not the INS or US Marshal. The FBOPs would require PZN/CCA to establish the authority to lock up federal inmates in CA. See Cornel in PA as example. Thanks 4 thinking of me folks.

    Yeah High -- you do need a considerable risk
    premium (i.e., yield) for a company like this one. As far
    as unions, I don't care what your predisposition is.
    As far as my post, the evidence speaks for itself.
    If Doc screws shareholders, that's on them, but the
    public should be made aware of the repeated foulups by
    CCA. Any other organization would come under the same
    scrutiny. The prison guard crimes out in California's
    system are shameful and that was a public system with
    union guards, but that doesn't matter. If a company or
    system is not able to do an adequate job, it should be
    penalized. Don't give me repeated evidence of CCA's
    inability, and I won't be able to post. You hate the
    messenger when you should hate the message.

    You're right, but the rate of escapes at CCA-run facilities far exceeds that of gov't run institutions, or other private vendors for that matter.
