Australian Prison "Out of Control"

In possibly only the second edition of our international series, this morning's link goes to a story about private prisons in Australia. Well, one in particular, run by Serco, one of the major international private prison firms.

This particular prison, Villawood, reports a "critical incident" every two days. These can include "assaults, bomb threats, chemical and biological threats, death, sexual assaults, riots, escape, hunger strikes, damage to facilities or protests." So one of those every two days. Which is great.

I guess America isn't the only country that can have a completely f***ed up prison system.
