If there is a problem with our government run prisons, then by all means let’s streamline the day to day operation of these facilities. Let’s find out what works and what doesn’t and change our methods. But, let’s not stop there. When we review and streamline lets include all areas of the government.
Right now in Louisiana, Bobby Jindal wants to sell and privative most of the state prisons. Not only is this ethically and morally wrong it will also put hundreds of men and women out of work. These men and women live in your community and may even be members of your family. It is these men and women that help to financially support the local businesses, private schools, restaurants, our communities. Jindal’s target for the moment is Avoyelles Correctional Center in Cottonport and J. Levy Dabadie Correctional Center in Pineville.
Help us save our state prisons. Join us and voice your support by calling Representatives throughout the state. On March 21st at 8:00 A.M. tune in to KRRV as members of our community voice their support against privatizing our state prisons.
You are also invited to join us in Baton Rouge on March 30th on the Capital steps to show your support. This will be an event you won’t want to miss.
