To the Editor,

I do not favor privatization, if it comes to a vote. In my view, the contracts are undependable, because the various companies have shown a history of pulling out if jail populations dip. My first principle, though, is that I do not think it is wise to give the power of government to a for-profit corporation, especially when the corporation is dealing with things that involve people’s natural and/or civil rights.
