Virginia Considering Privatization
Quick link here to an article discussing how Virginia is considering privatizing the only prison facility in the state devoted to sexually violent offenders. Because what better population would you want a profit-driven company in charge of? But it's a very good article that discusses a lot of the risks and drawbacks associated with privatization, including the industry's ability (or lack thereof) to save money, its many security issues, and the millions of dollars it spend in political contributions to cover all that up.
