Prison Privitization

So when you think of prisons, they want you to think of sheets like thisDwight Correctional Center 2000 Audit.

They want you to think how private institutions are more efficient. My sister is wrongfully in jail for over 20 years. lets examine the letter she sent me today.

Would you call this suicide, death, negligence, or murder?

Dear Aaron
BKA "Bubba"

Hello little baby. How are you? Good I hope! I know it's not time to write you cause I am waiting to hear from you but I've got some grapes to tell you so I'm writing a bit early. About 2 weeks or so this girl that was in seg. here died.
She died on a Wednesday and her out date was on Friday. 2 days. But from what I hear that girls family is on top of it. The girl and her roommate were banging on the door for over an hour and the C.O.s would not go to her room to see what they wanted, and she ended up dying in there.
There have been way too many girls die down here since I've been here. I go to every memorial service they have here. Even if I don't know who they are. I go to pay my respects. I feel so bad because they had to die in here. It's so sad. I just want you to know that if anything ever happens to me down here do not accept what you first hear.
It would be because an officer did not do his / her job and you'd better get paid from these bastards. And some people should loss their jobs. So far from what I hear only one Sgt. has been walked because of this last death. But if anything ever happens, you make sure it is investigated and you sue these people. ok.
Well I finished Computer Tech. today. My graduation isn't until May.
That's really all that's happened on this end. But I had to write you. I miss you! How's your web sites doing? Tell me all about it.
I'm gonna write Grandma and Mom a quick letter. I hate writing too so since I'm already writing, I might as well do it and get it over with.
I love & miss you!

Love Always
Your one & only
