There are many cases many with tragic out-comes when a state relinquishes its responsibility to a private for profit prison/jail.

Ohio becomes 1st in nation to sell state prison to private company; 4 others not sold


By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, September 1, 6:14 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio — A lockup along the shores of Lake Erie has become the first state prison in the nation to be sold to a private company.

Lake Erie Correctional Institution in northeastern Ohio’s Ashtabula County is the only one of five state prisons up for sale that will be sold, state officials said Thursday. Corrections Corporation of America will buy it for $72.7 million, more than the $50 million needed from the privatization effort to balance the state’s prison budget.

The four other prisons for sale didn’t generate offers advantageous to taxpayers, state officials said.

CCA, the nation’s largest prison operator, takes control of the Lake Erie facility in Conneaut on Dec. 31, pending the outcome of a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the move.

Offering the prisons for sale was an idea spearheaded by Republican Gov. John Kasich as he grappled with an $8 billion budget hole earlier this year. He wasn’t the only governor to propose it: Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana introduced a similar plan that was shot down by state lawmakers in June.

Management Training Corp. of Centerville, Utah, successfully landed rights to operate North Central Correctional Institution and the vacant Marion Juvenile Correctional Facility as a single prison camp, saving 6 percent on state costs, the prisons department said.

North Coast Correctional Treatment Facility in Lorain County, currently operated along with Lake Erie by MTC, will be returned to state control and merged with Grafton Correctional Institution.

“I was taken aback,” said Ohio Civil Service Employees Association president Chris Mabe about the news. His union, representing prison guards and other corrections employees, had staged protests in Ashtabula, Marion and Lorain counties, where prisons were up for sale, over fears of lost jobs and jeopardized safety.

“As it stands right now today, it gives us hope,” he said, noting OCSEA has worked with state prisons officials for a decade to see a merger of the two Grafton buildings that would save state jobs. The state said it doesn’t anticipate job losses on the newly configured Marion campus, and state jobs may be added at the Grafton complex.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Ohio said the prison sale doesn’t fix the main problem that too many people are being incarcerated.

“These changes are nothing more than a Band-Aid for the deep-seated problems that continue to plague our state,” Policy Director Shakyra Diaz said in a statement. “Privatization does nothing to address it, and may actually make it worse by allowing companies to make a profit off imprisoning people.”

The prisons department is requiring private facilities to meet all state safety mandates, and it’s stepping up its oversight function, said Annette Chambers-Smith, deputy director of administration at the prisons department.

The combination of operational changes — part of Kasich’s privatization push — is estimated to save the state a combined $13 million annually, about twice as much as what was anticipated.

i wouldnt be surprised if he was a investor!

I'll do some digging so don't quote me but, it seems to me when schuette and or snyders campaign contribution list was released there was a for profit private prison corporation listed as a money contributor.

Still looking through all these and their sub companies but you go...

A List of Top Contributors to Michigan Governor Rick Snyder


UPDATE JUNE 24, 2011: For further information on the effort to recall Gov. Rick Snyder, or to volunteer for the recall effort, please go here. SIGNING AN ONLINE PETITION DOES NOT COUNT TOWARD LEGAL RECALL!!
The list is derived from information found on Follow the Money, is a work in progress, and depicts the top contributors of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder. I was shocked to see the University of Michigan at the top of the list.

University of Michigan contributed $65,851 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan contributed $46,376 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Dow Chemical contributed $41,062 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
PriceWaterhouseCoopers contributed $35,600 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
DTE Energy contributed $32,448 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Miller Canfield Paddock & Stone contributed $31,850 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Dykema Gossett PLLC contributed $28,786 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Deloitte & Touche contributed $24,350 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Walbridge Aldinger Co contributed $24,150 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Meijer, Inc contributed $24,080 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Amway/Alticor contributed $21,220 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Masco Corp contributed $18,140 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Foley & Lardner contributed $17,450 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Ford Motor Co contributed $15,059 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
CMS Energy contributed $14,250 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Dow Corning contributed $12,904 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Northwestern Mutual Life Ins contributed $12,343 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Dickinson Wright contributed $12,110 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Delta Dental contributed $12,025 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Ernst & Young contributed $10,953 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Quicken Loans contributed $10,900 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Arbor Investments Group contributed $10,200 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
General Motors contributed $8,730 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Merrill Lynch contributed $8,600 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
Sterling Equities contributed $8,400 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder
JP Morgan Chase & Co contributed $8,275 to Michigan Dictator Governor, Rick Snyder

UPDATE - MARCH 15 Although followthemoney.org has listed the University of Michigan itself as the second largest contributor, after seeing a reader comment, and then checking out additional records, I found that the University actually only contributed $2,250, and the employees of UMICH, contributed $63,601, probably through a PAC.

It is a distinction, however in my opinion, it is not much of one, since the school itself and its employees are intertwined. In other words, the school is still responsible to the extent that they sure hired a lot of Conservative employees. As long as Follow the Money has it listed as I originally posted it, I am going to leave it as is, however I did want to add this explanatory note.

How does this differ from slavery? They've turned citizens into a commodity to be bought and sold. This is wrong on many MANY levels and I can't get my mind around how this is even legal.

If the state is financially unable to run the facility, maybe they should look at how they can get rid of the need for it. By legalizing or decriminalizing marijuana, they would not only reduce the inmate population possibly avoiding the need for the facility entirely, but they could also benefit from taxation, creating jobs, licensing and so on. This is obvious stuff and that long list of law enforcement would raise hell if they weren't allowed to continue acting as thugs and terrorizing the public.

The federal government shares the blame also. I don't know if these ELECTED officials have noticed, but the nation is broke. We're so broke, we can't even borrow enough money to pay the interest on the money we owe. Yet the government keeps handing billions of dollars to states to continue doing what isn't working. This is the definition of insanity folks.

This simply can't continue. We're on the fast track to failure and our chauffeured and manicured leaders are too busy feeding from the hands of lobbyists, diddling pages and interns in bathrooms, and twittering nude photos of themselves to underage children. These are the people that are supposed to be driving the bus but they can't see to the windshield, let alone past it, to see the cliff they're barreling towards. Meanwhile, states are now resorting to slavery, yes SLAVERY to make ends meet.

I keep saying it, and I repeat it because it's inevitable. Citizens are rapidly becoming aware of what is going on and this overt abuse, ineptitude and indifference for the American people, and The Constitution is going to result in action, in some form. I can only pray that it's peaceful removal of the parasitic tumor sucking the life out of the nation.
