Couldn't Have Said it Better Myself

Governor Lingle of Hawaii has threatened to veto a measure pending before Hawaii's legislature that calls for an audit of the state's contract with CCA to house prisoners stateside.  Why I Hate CCA is firmly in support of such a measure, as I have reported on two murders of Hawaiian prisoners in the Saguaro Correctional Facility that took place over the course of the last 6 months.  Clearly, CCA has failed to adequately secure this facility and protect the Hawaiian inmates under its watch.

As Daniel Gluck, an attorney at the ACLU of Hawaii put it, "Hawaii allowing a $61 million no-bid contract to go on for 15 years with no independent oversight is an unsound financial practice for the state"
