A glimpse at private prison propaganda

Using the Public Information Act, the blog Texas Prison Bidness got hold of a lobby packet (pdf) sent by Corrections Corporation of America to the Governor urging him to support federal legislation to block cell phones at prisons. It also includes fact sheets about each of CCA's Texas facilities. Scroll toward the end for some of the more propagandistic pieces reacting to criticisms of the industry.

Private prison for profit is a direct threat to every American's freedom today. If the authorities do not like something such as a protest just throw everyone in a prison and no one is ever heard from again. How can a person not believe that today we have become a police state.
