Why are the prisons in AZ not protecting the people of AZ?

    Because Gov. Jan Brewer and the AZ Republicans have handed over the running of four AZ jails to for-profit private entities which more interested in making money than in protecting the people of AZ.

    The three murderers who recently escaped and went on a killing spree were being held in a jail that was not designed for high security violent criminals.
    It was designed as a facility for low-risk DUI offenders.

    Just watch this video and hear the unbelievable details about how easy it was for the inmates to escape, and about the gross incompetence that's become the hallmark of AZ prisons.

    There's also a dirty trail of cronyism and lobbying leading straight to Brewer.

    Just have a listen to the sleazy way Brewer does business

    Probably you should put that fierce fascist Joe Arpaio on the job to find this excaped convict and let him take the convict to his boot camp at the Maricopa County Jail.

    The incompetence of AZ governor Jan Brewer becomes clearer by the day.

    Yeah... she actually snuck the keys to their jail cell to them in that cake she had sent over.... icon_rolleyes.gif


    In a way, she did. Read up on this subject before you take jabs, fool.

    Yeah right... Always playing the race card, aren't you....

    Well, you do have a degree in racism after all... icon_rolleyes.gif


    When you simply say I am playing the race card and refuse to create a valid argument it shows how weak your understand of topic is and destroys your credibility.

    Read a book, you could stand to learn something.

    It is always remarkable to me that in the US we lock up---at remarkable public expense----roughly 5-8 times more people per 100,000 than European countries like Britain, France and Germany while simultaneously experiencing higher crime rates. You might have hoped that at the very least we might incarcerate people competently.

    It is also remarkable that we never hear the "less government" brigade advocating incarcerating fewer people.

    Because many prisons are owned by private companies. Locking people up is less about justice and more about business.

    We send them to jail for minor things, put them in cells with SERIOUS criminals, in a year or few months when they get out they've become hardened career criminals due to the experience and go right back to jail.

    Yeah, what, like 300 or so private prisons in the whole country housing a tiny fraction of those imprisoned.

    And by the way... the UK started all this (and continues to have privately run prisons), as does Israel apparently.



    1st private prison USA 1984 http://government.cce.cornell.edu/doc/html/PrisonsPrivatization.htm

    in the UK - 1990s (actually 1992) http://www.hmprisonservice.gov.uk/prisoninformation/privateprison/

    or are you talking centuries ago?

    Oh god you are a typical Republican, blaming others for the inept decisions the Republicans have made in the history of the United States. Have you EVER picked up a history book or just the enquirer.....enquiring minds wanna know your oppinion.......NOT. If AZ was smart they would get rid of brewer AND that republican pussy McPain for starters.

    Right.... so you agree with the Everything-Is-Race-Motivated-DoomsDayAlpaca when he said, "If these people had Spanish sounding last names they would be full of bullets already," yes?

    I'm calling him out on a racist statement that he made.

    Apparently he gets a pass from you because he's on "your team." icon_rolleyes.gif


    everything Brewer does IS race motivated dip shit. I wish all naysayers like you would live on the border for at least a year....like me......brewer only did this to try to get votes.
    But a florida peon knows arizona so well...........please beyotch!

    I lived in Arizona for 6 months. Everyone over age 40 is racist, and they vote.

    And, white people are fine with Mexican restaurants.

    The privatisation of prisons does not just happen in AZ, or America. But then Arizona is trying to protect the whole of America from A to Z, with boarder controle, and illegals in their State. Not just from illegals entering America for opportunities, but from terrorists too. AZ gets my Vote.

    when i heard about the about the prison escapees i thought to myself, "hmmm....kinda took the eye off the ball there fuhrer brewer. too busy with pushing your own illegal laws and too busy investigating consuela the housemaid who may or may not be here in the US "illegally" that you completely ignored the rapists and murderers. nice. icon_rolleyes.gif" the governor needs to spend the state resources hunting down ALL murderers instead of focusing its attention on just a small group. i'm curious to know what the ethnicity of these escapees were.

    Did you read that Otterjog, your meds are coming luv, help is on the way for you my brother. Since she is the one with the issues with the bold, help has been redirected to where it belongs. Yet once agin, you blame the action of your own, on another; how democrats of you.

    Now I have to go back to the Clinton Body Count, and feel secure that Arizona is protecting America from A to Z....

    Oh privatisation of prisons, is happening all over the world, and Government run prisons have a long history of people escaping, even from Alcatraz.

    having now been at RJ for a number of years and witnessing, and being a target off all the hate that have come from the gay left of America. it was fever pitch before the last elections. I have become good at seeing all their bullshit. But have you even looked at the Clinton body count? How the list goes on, and some of you guy want to put another one in the White House.

    But sleep tight at night knowing Arizona is doing it's bit to protect America from A to Z.

    You are not racist because you permit Mexican restaurants???

    OMFG!!! LMAO!!! No wonder your state is so messed up!!!

    "Some of my best friends are Mexican" is no doubt something else you could tell us.

    OMG!!! Not bigots because you have Mexican restaurants. Ya know, during the worst of the Southern segregation of the 1950s, there were Black restaurants, too?

    That's the most pathetic argument I have ever heard in my life! icon_razz.gif

    Good gawd, we're reliving Southern segregation against Blacks all over again. Just when we thought our dark slavery past was behind us, something like Arizona happens.

    Are we really a free country, or just one that calls ourself that? The rest of the world thinks we are a tyranny and a terrorist state, check the polls. Just because we teach ourselves we are the "Land of the Free" in our schools does not make it so. The Soviets taught the same thing, and the Chinese and North Koreans still do. We're way overdue for a reality check.

    Remember it's not what America can do for you.

    But....what you can do for America.
