another stupid idea . . . what we'll see is a roundup of immigrants so that the prison can reap big profits. lowndes county can't seem to escape the middle ages . . . pathetically uneducated and unimaginative "leaders" . . .

Former Governor Sonny Perdue appointed Lowndes County Commission Chairman Ashley Paulk to the Georgia Department of Corrections. I'm sure there is a cozy relationship between several public officials and private lobbyists here in Georgia, the same way NPR uncovered connections in Arizona.

There will be no incentive for rehabilitation or for empty beds in a private prison. Private prisons in North Carolina have put furniture companies out of business because it's impossible to pay a decent wage when the state is paying prisoners $1 a day to build furniture.

NAACP is opposed to prison privatization.
