"One More in a Long Line of Mistakes"
I just want to drop a quick link here to an excellent analysis of the push to privatize prisons in Ohio by its governor, John Kasich, who hired a former CCA employee as the head of his department of corrections. The title of the article is pretty self-explanatory: "Kasich's Latest Move on Private Prison One More in a Long Line of Mistakes." Kasich has been pushing privatization from the moment he stepped into office, but he may not have thought through all the ramifications of privatizing, and his taxpayers appear to have gotten the raw end of the deal.
