Private Prisons Pro and Con
All on display in ID right now where the governor is trying to change state law to allow private prisons wider rein. Or is it reign? Actually, that’s part of the debate that’s going on, the whole “what’s best for the state?” argument with both sides reciting their now-familiar lines well.
