A prison with criminals in it within our borders? What? Oh my! I had heard about "prisons" in newspapers and on the tv, but I never would have expected to see a prison on US soil. We've always released our murderers, rapists, and thieves to freely roam the countryside as their punishment. Only in the third world are criminals involuntarily confined to a secure facilities.
Everyone knows that the US does not have the hardened structures to house one of these so-called prisons or the experienced personnel to run it. Now those crazy liberals want to create the first prison on US soil! Looks like Nazi Germany to me. It's a slippery slope - first these far left radicals ask for prison facilities subject to American law and next they will demand that no one be held inside one of them indefinitely without a trial. I shouldn't have to remind them to read their constitutions. I believe one of those amendments states something to effect, "Inherent human rights and due process are only for American citizens that the government has not summarily deemed to be enemy combatants." /s
Thomas Jefferson and James Madison are rolling in their graves knowing we've begun giving people trials. We all know they're guilty so why waste the money - vague allegations from an authority figure are all I need to put a man in the electric chair. That's the American way!

Mont. lawmakers want info on secretive CA company.
BILLINGS, Mont. -- Montana legislators said Tuesday they want to know more about a secretive California company that wants to take over an empty jail in the southeastern corner of the state and build a military training center on adjacent property.
The company, American Police Force, has attracted widespread attention with its plans - but won't reveal its backers or where it would get prisoners for the jail, located in the rural city of Hardin.

Glen Beck says there are no camps. He wouldn't lie to us would he?
I live in Hardin. We have been told by Kerri Smith (mayoral candidate) that everything would be okay if we just go along with APF. That quote is also in the paper. This town has suddenly gotten scary. Our Sheriff Department is now leaving because a "Police Force" is going to be trained to take over. That is in the news too. I am 17. Do I have a future? Moving away from here seems like it would be smart but in the end, a waste of time.
I am a resident of Hardin. There are many people here that are very concerned about what is going on in our small town. Many of us have asked questions, and we are either ignored or shouted down. Little if any details are being released from the local officials and in my opinion that is only adding fuel to the fire.
In a off the record conversation, with one of the officials of the TRA, the individual admitted that Mr. Greg Smith did have a conversation with the APF regarding police protection for the City of Hardin. The official stated that it was completely inappropriate for Mr. Smith to have such a conversation, and that is part of the reason for being placed on admin. leave. His wife has been offered a position with the APF if she does not win the mayoral election. My greatest concern is that our "officials" do not have the best interest of our community at heart, and maybe selling us down the river, for a few coins in their pocket.
A section of text on the Defense Product Solutions Web site matches word-for-word text found on Web sites for Allied Defense Systems and Defense Logistic Services, all promising a similarly exhaustive range of military products and services.
Since 9/11, many small companies "became very proficient in tracking out contract opportunities and worrying later about how they were going to fulfill them," Garvey said, adding that many other small contractors are competent and reputable.
"But a lot of small companies, if they run into trouble and get caught not playing by the rules, can close down and open up under another name next week," he said.
