Corrections Corporation of America doesn't want you knowing too much about the "Gladiator School" it's operating out of the Idaho Correctional Center near Boise. Even though it's taking more than $29 million of your tax dollars every year, the company went to court last week to keep you in the dark about a lawsuit inmates in the violence-ridden ICC have filed. Were ICC managed by Idaho's Department of Correction, the institution's management would be accountable to the public. But as a private company, CCA answers to no one but its shareholders. As such, it has no problem shutting the public out/Marty Trillhaase, Lewiston Tribune. More here.
Question: Did Idaho make a bad decision by privatizing this prison?
