Georgia, which already has the 4th-highest incarcerated population in the country, wants to further privatize its prison system. It's typical republican jargon, mainly focused on how the private sector can provide better services (they can't) for a cheaper price (again, they can't). In fact, the new governor said, "I think we should look at a lot of privatization."
I sometimes feel like for all the progress that's ever made in society, we often take 2 steps back before taking one forward. In this case, and seemingly all concerning private prisons, it seems like republicans are looking to take us backwards.
