The CCA prison has been the subject of multiple lawsuits alleging rampant violence, understaffing, gang activity and contract fraud by CCA.
CCA acknowledged last year that falsified staffing reports were given to the state showing thousands of hours were staffed by CCA workers when the positions were actually vacant. And the Idaho state police is investigating the operation of the facility for possible criminal activity.
A federal judge also has held CCA in contempt of court for failing to abide by the terms of a settlement agreement reached with inmates in a lawsuit claiming high rates of violence and chronic understaffing at the prison.
Who could have seen that coming You have X amount of man hours to properly do a job, now the super efficient private enterprise is going to do it for less AND make a profit. Impossible. Good riddance. Next to health insurance companies these dirtbags are at the top of the shit list of companies we can do without.
Aren't there a lot of articles out there that it takes around $50k/year to house a convict? If so, then the contract was woefully low to begin with - which is the fault of both the company for bidding and the state for accepting something that low.
