“No soldier shall, in time of peace be quartered in any house, without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war, but in a manner to be prescribed by law.
“ARTICLE THE SIXTH
“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
IN A NUTSHELL,
BE VERY CONCERNED!
Also you need to know that the Corrections Corporation of America, a leading corporation in the privatized prison industry, is currently negotiating with various states across the nation (like Ohio) to privatize prison operations offering 20 YEAR CONTRACTS,
with a GUARANTEE OF 90% prison occupancy.
THE IMPLICATIONS WILL BE CATASTROPHIC TO ALL CITIZENS,
especially those who are marginalized and labeled as "undesirables". This will also mean the escalation of a biased judicial system where police officers, public defenders and judges will work together to increase the number of persons convicted and the length of the sentences they receive. This is especially problematic and devastating for minorities and immigrants!
Privatized Prisons Preparing A Place For The Unassuming Masses!
BEWARE AND BE AWARE!

Here's a little info copied from the CCA Website

About CCACCA founded the private corrections management industry more than 25 years ago, establishing industry standards for future-focused, (so we're planning for more and more criminals in the "future" hmmn??? How sociopathic is that?) forward-thinking correctional solutions. A commitment to innovation, efficiency, cost effectiveness and achievement has made the company the private corrections management provider of choice for federal, state and local agencies since 1983.
As a full-service corrections management provider, CCA specializes in the design, construction, expansion and management of prisons, jails and detention facilities, (what the hell is a "detention facility"--could this be referring to the mysterious revitilization of numerous previously abandoned FEMA "detention camps" popping up all over the country?) as well as inmate transportation services through its subsidiary company TransCor America. The company is the fifth-largest corrections system in the nation, behind only the federal government and three states. (how did they conveniently jump from being a corporation to a corrections "system" and who gave them authority to liken themselves in size and scope to the federal government corrections "system"? Hmnnn???)
CCA houses approximately 75,000 offenders and detainees in more than 60 facilities, 44 of which are company-owned, (well there you go, plain as day...44 privately owned prisons in the U.S. already!) with a total bed capacity of more than 80,000. CCA currently partners with all three federal corrections agencies (The Federal Bureau of Prisons, the U.S. Marshals Service and Immigration and Customs Enforcement), nearly half of all states and more than a dozen local municipalities.
Since its inception, CCA has maintained its market leadership position in private corrections, managing more than 50 percent of all beds under contract with such providers in the United States. (so this means they have over 50% of the market share; making them extremely powerful to lobby at the federal level for more and bigger PRISON CONTRACTS. MEANING... they have a vested interest in pushing (paying) for legislation that will increase the "demand" for more prisons by creating more...you got it... PRISONERS!" The company joined the New York Stock Exchange in 1994 and now trades under the ticker symbol CXW. (might as well invest in that stock...you'll make a killing...pun intended!) Headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, CCA employs nearly 17,000 professionals nationwide in security, academic and vocational education, health services, inmate programs, facility maintenance, human resources, management and administration. The company has been named among “America’s Best Big Companies” by Forbes magazine and ranked number one in the publication’s “Business Services and Supplies” category. G.I. Jobs magazine also named CCA as a “Top 50 Military-Friendly Employer.”
CCA offers offenders a variety of dynamic rehabilitation and education programs, including addictions treatment, GED preparation and testing, post-secondary studies, life skills, employment training, recreational options and work opportunities.
The company also provides valuable economic benefits to its local community partners (bribes, incentives, illegal and legal campaign contributions...etc.) by paying property, sales and other taxes, and providing a stable employment base that focuses on building careers with unlimited growth and development opportunities. As a strong corporate citizen, (somebody PLEASE shoot me with this one!...the whole "corporate citizen"ship smoke screen is really a license to override our true citizenship in this once, great republic of the U.S. of A) recognized by Corporate Responsibility Officer magazine, CCA contributes generously to host communities through volunteerism and charitable giving (BRIBES OF OUR ELECTED OFFICIALS!).
