In usa today march 8, 2012 is an article titled, "Prison buyers lock in occupancy. "Privat purchases bring in cash but could mean harsh sentences".

WASHINGTON - At a time when states are struggling to reduce bloated prison populations and tight budgets, a private prison management company is is offering to buy prisons in exchange for guarantee that governments maintain a 90% occupancy rate for at least 20 years. In exchange the states get an immediate cash influx as they are paid $250,000,000 for their prisons.

The obvious concern here is that states will be contractually obligated to maintain the 90% occupancy rates by pressuring legislators to make sentencing laws more severe just to drive up profits.

All I can say is WOW. again, I got one hand on my gun and the other on my bible where it says, thou shalt not kill. WOW, this country is going to shit.

I believe the mormons temple rituals are right, the devil is buying up armys to war against our freedom.

Really? This is what you are worried about with other things going around in the world? 90% occupancy shouldn't be hard to maintain and not make stiffer sentencing. It would back-fire to make stiffer sentencing because of all the lawsuits people will attack the states with. Besides, we need the money. Remember, if we can't maintain all of our prisons who suffers because of it? Not the ones who get free because of decreased ability to pay for security and the increased amount of people crowded into prisons. Besides aren't you people all for equal pay and unions?

id rather keep my tax dolllars and speeding ticket fines, and overpriced dmv persecution fees to pay for my own security systems, guns, bars on my home, and maybe some flame throwers mounted around my home, than to pay some government working bum to protect me. Remember if those 200 citizens on those planes had side arms that crashed into the twin towers, we wouldnt have lost even one plane, nor spent trillions of dollars, or be inconvenienced by government inspections, which is our constitutional right to have anyways.

Read deeper. The out of control prison guard unions have the states by the throat. Who was the biggest supporter of Californias 3 strikes law? The prison guard unions. By off loading ridiculous union contracts, the state save money.
