I would expect a trial attorney like Roy Copeland to have a better-than-average understanding of the human rights abuses associated with private prisons, but all he's worried about is whether some other community is going to out-compete Valdosta for this atrocity? Shame shame shame.

This man needs to go, all of them (with exception of newcomer Tom Call) need to go. They are either the most unChristian group ever assembled or the most ill-informed. If they aren't going to research a project adequately then they don't need to be sitting on this board. Valdosta deserves better.

Dear Mr. Quarterman, I apologize for the double post. I invite you to post "Resolution Calling for the Abolition of For-Profit Private Prisons". I found this after ten minutes of internet research, actually took me less time to find this than all the dirt on Dr. Christopher Teaf, the "star expert witness for biomass". Here's just a few excerpts from the Presbyterian elders: "Private prison companies sometimes lie about the security level..to convince a community to buy into their project. Then when escapes and violence inside a prison get bad, it's too late for the community." I wonder if Mr. Ricketts will continue in Mr. Lofton's footsteps and use the tactic of smear campaign and character attacks to convince Valdosta that the Presbyterian elders are a fringe group who don't know anything? You know, the way he did with me. Oh and in case anyone hasn't heard yet, Mr. Lofton offered to partner with a local man who refers to me as the KKK. Mr. Lofton sent that email to dozens of local public officials. I wonder what they'll call the Presbyterian church?
