On a recent visit to Tucson, Arizona, where I was invited to give a presentation on monetary reform, I was disturbed by a story of strange goings on in the desert. A little over a year ago, it seems, a new industrial facility sprang up on the edge of town. It was in a remote industrial zone and appeared to be a bus depot. The new enterprise was surrounded by an imposing security fence and bore no outward signs identifying its services. However, it soon became apparent that the compound was in the business of outfitting a fleet of prison buses. Thirty or so secondhand city buses were being reconfigured with prison bars in the windows and a coat of fresh paint bearing the “Wackenhut G4S” logo on the side.
Group 4 Securicor plc, with operations in more than 100 countries on 6 continents, offers security directors - with multi-continent responsibilities and the authority to drive local buying decisions at the country level - the benefits of its unique International Accounts Program.
G4S plc (formerly Group 4 Securicor, LSE: GFS, OMX: G4S) is the world's largest security services provider. Formed by the merger of Securicor and Group 4 Falck in July 2004, it employs over 500,000 people across more than 100 nations and six continents. Its services include manned security, operation of criminal justice systems, electronic security systems, and financial services including cash transfer.
We specialise in assessing current and future risks and developing secure solutions to minimise their impact.
G4S was the subject of a global campaign by union workers alleging that subsidiaries undermine labour and human rights standards. Some of these groups were organised under the banner of the SEIU funded Focus on Group 4 Securicor.

gun towers and razor wire are not exactly suited for civil protesters. these are used for dangerous people. although i'm not fully discounting your reasoning, these facilities are set up to kill people who might want to leave, by the very nature and design of their contruction
