Private Corrections Working Group Field Organizer Frank Smith discussed issues surrounding the for-profit prison industry with Premier Radio Networks’ Randi Rhodes, May 19, 2011.
Smith, who has been fighting private prison development nationwide for the better part of the past decade, expounded on prison privatization failings and corruption, ranging from the Luzerne County juvenile judges scandal to the infamous Idaho CCA ‘Gladiator School.’
Rhodes, a Florida-based broadcaster, has turned her attention to the private prison industry in the wake of Florida Governor Rick Scott’s broad privatization agenda, which calls for the privatization of thousands of prison ‘beds’ in the southern portion of the state.
