DOJ announces they are ending use of private prisons!! Huge!
[link to www.washingtonpost.com (secure)]
The Justice Department plans to end its use of private prisons after officials concluded the facilities are both less safe and less effective at providing correctional services than those run by the government.

Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates announced the decision on Thursday in a memo that instructs officials to either decline to renew the contracts for private prison operators when they expire or “substantially reduce” the contracts’ scope. The goal, Yates wrote, is “reducing — and ultimately ending — our use of privately operated prisons.”

This is huge.

Hopefully states' will follow suit and this is the beginning of the Change this country needsblack_hear

Want proof the these private prisons were more corrupt than the Warden in Shawshank Redemption? When our Federal Overlords say this about private businesses:

"The goal is to ultimately end the Justice Department's use of the privately operated prisons as they provide lower quality services and are less cost efficient"
Do you ever get the feeling that every thing in America is completely fu(ked up?

About time!!

They need to also end the use of PRIVATE ARMIES (ie: mercenaries) to do that work that the US Military should do.

If it isn't a good enough fight for the US to fight directly ... then they shouldn't be doing it secretly via PRIVATE ARMIES!!

Because no one believes this. This could possibly be a step in the right direction and I don't believe our government is capable of doing the right thing.

And we trust the DOJ because

The Obama administration skipped the standard public process of bidding and offered the nation’s largest prison company a generous deal to build a massive detention facility for women and children seeking asylum.

I get asked to show one thing the government can run efficiently and I'll always show them a prison. If Hillary wins some of us might get better acquainted with one.

There are many more Federal Penitentiaries and Correctional Institutions than I realized:
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

These are not privately owned, AFAIK.

Many States use private contractors for prison facilities.

In 2013, there were 133,000 US Federal Prisoners held in privately owned prisons:
