CCA requests rape lawsuit be dropped

Prison company asks judge to dismiss prisoner rape suit
By Beth Musgrave
I’ll try to sum this up in CCA’s own words:
1. In documents filed this week in federal court in Pikeville, CCA says the Kentucky woman never filed a formal grievance about the rape and therefore the civil lawsuit she filed July 2 should be dismissed
2. "CCA has a zero-tolerance policy for inappropriate contact between staff and inmates and takes any such allegations seriously," said Steve Owen, a spokesman for the company, which is headquartered in Nashville. "We will support full prosecution under the law for any criminal activity detected."

If you've found your way to my blog, I probably sent you here, or, hopefully, you hate CCA (Corrections Corporation of America) and prison privatization in general as much as I do. There are myriad reasons WHY I hate CCA, GEO, MTC, Cornell, and anyone else who strives to make money from the incarceration of human beings. You will hear all about them, I assure you. So check back often to see why I do, and you should, hate CCA and their ilk.

Adios for now
