Nashville-Based Corrections Firm Offers Cash For Prisons

ATLANTA (AP) — The nation’s largest private prison company made an enticing offer to 48 states that went something like this: We will buy your prison now if you agree to keep it mostly full and promise to pay us for running it over the next two decades. Despite a need for cash, several states immediately slammed the door on the offer, a sign that privatizing prisons might not be as popular as it once was.

ADDED: This is extremely dangerous, privatizing prison. Which will turn our “corrections system” into another for profit venture. But the scary side of this is the open encouragement by the company for the .gov to incarcerate more of its citizens.
