Private Prison Staff Drive Immigrants to Suicide

I wish that were an embellishment.  Just a quick link here to a story from Australia, where a guard working for the private prison company Serco apparently refused repeated requests to negotiate with a suicidal immigrant in his facility, then intimidated the man so relentlessly he jumped to his death. "Those who were dealing with him lacked the training, expertise, and ability to recognise what was playing out in front of them," said a psychiatrist who reviewed the situation.  It looks like Australia got exactly what it paid for when it decided to bring in a private, for-profit company to house its immigrants.
