PLEASE FORWARD

Heads Up, South Florida:

Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) is about to build yet another one of their prison industrial complex, slave labor production for pennies "detention centers" in YOUR back yard:

If we can tear you away from the NFL, Dancing with the Stars, the trial of Michael Jackson's doctor, the troubles of the Teutuls and the Kri$e$ of the Karda$hian$ for a few moments, perhaps you might find this sufficient reason for concern to stop texting, power down your iPad, roll off your futon and actually do something that means something:

Thank you for making me aware of this, being that I live in South Florida. I'll do what I can to pass along this knowledge and take direct action.

This is very important. This is more faux privatization. CCA is a horrendous monstrosity. People should have been paying attention when there was back slapping going on in Arizona.

CCA gets the bejeezes sued out of them and rightly so. This means that tax payers will pay for this. One would think that if people could not find it within themselves to treat any inmate with dignity then they would at least pay attention to the money.

CCA does, in fact, disgust me.

Great thread!!!.
