The "rent a cop" solution is a bad one, but not just because of attitude, training, etc.

Simple thing is, I think you'd see a lot of turnover with a private security force, meaning mostly green guards. From a few friends who work in this area, it's the consistency of who's in charge that really does the trick, plus they know the quirks, who the troublemakers are, etc.

Not to mention, with the government oversight, you'll have a lot less risk of lawsuits based on ignorance of law, etc. in handling the inmates. All in all, private security in prisons is just a bad idea for everyone, including the ones running the prison.

Been there. Done that. Gary Johnson wanted to privatize New Mexico prisons even in the face of the evidence you just cited and more. When a person willfully does something foolish and destructive I can only conclude that he is stupid, insane, or cruel.

Gary Johnson should have been impeached when he was governor of New Mexico.

An interesting point, to examine the local record of a candidate.

From an initial look, seemed like a pretty decent one, but yeah, that would be a bonehead move.

Jeb Bush is another example. Had it not been for one case. Terry Schiavo.
Jeb basically used the power of his office to deliberately override the wishes of her husband, and try to actually steal her away in the night, to prevent pulling the plug. Something her husband states she'd want (his wife was in a persistent vegetatitve state). Any sane person would want the same, but oh no, Jeb's "Christian" values suddenly made him feel that he (as a politician) had more say in this than her husband. Bad form man, bad form. Luckily, he didn't succeed, and Terry's suffering is now at an end.

You do realize a lot of people are against euthanasia.

Imagine doing something that you think is extremely morally wrong. Now imagine yourself doing it.

A lot of people believe that euthanasia is wrong and is evil.
