Questionable Track Record
Happy MLK Day! To start this week a little late, I want to begin with a quick link to an article that evaluates the record of the GEO Group as they attempt to secure a contract to house mentally ill criminals in North Carolina. With a population as vulnerable for abuse as the mentally ill, NC should really take a hard look at this for-profit company with a history of cost-cutting and negligence. In fact, the company's care has been called "atrocious" by one expert who has studied their operations for years. As you'll see in the article, and if you have ever read anything on here before, that's a very accurate statement.
