Despite Governor Abercrombie's promise to bring all Hawaiian prisoners back to the mainland from the private prisons they're currently housed in, such a feat may not be possible. Turns out Hawaii doesn't really have the capacity to house those couple thousand guys. So they're seeking bids to house them in private prisons. Thankfully, they're at least looking to have a company build or operate one in Hawaii, which is good for prisoners to maintain connections with their families. But I still can't support housing them in private prisons.
