A Bad Return on Hawaii's Investment

Following the deaths of two Hawaiian inmates at the Saguaro Correctional Facility in Arizona, which is run by CCA, the state's contract with the company and CCA's execution thereof have come under much greater scrutiny from the public and the press.  The author of the article learned from an anonymous prisoner that the facility is severely understaffed according to the contract the state has with CCA.  But this doesn't dampen Honolulu Attorney Peter Carlisle's enthusiasm for sending Hawaiian prisoners to be assaulted in Arizona; because the prison is accredited by the American Correctional Association (which is easier to come by than he'd like to imagine, when CCA helps fund their conferences), apparently it's just peachy.

    I am a former CCA employee who has first hand experience on how inmates are treated and how staff are treated as well. I for instance was cursed out in public in front of inmates and staff alike, I was threatend on a contual basis, and above all fired due to massive lies that were spread around the facility to the Warden. He had no evidence other than word of mouth and even then this facility could not get thier facts straight.
