Great News from Arizona

Two quick links here (title and below) to some great news coming out of Arizona this morning.  The state rejected all 4 formal bids to build 5,000 private prison beds that followed a request for proposals earlier this year.  Citing the recent escapes from Kingman, the state decided to can the request entirely and now will not be seeking to add 5,000 private beds to their capacity.

I think this comes as especially good news to the citizens of Globe, Arizona, who seemed nearly unanimous in opposition to a private prison being built in their small town.
