Privatization of Prison Systems

There has been some question about the efficacy of a private prison system.  What is your position and what should we expect from your administration?

A:

I am concerned that the privatization of the prison system is the impetus to prisoner abuses all for profit. The prison system should be less of a human housing entity and more about a program that is focused on the rehabilitation of offenders of the law. After an offender has successfully served the legally imposed sentence, all of their rights should be restored, thus giving them a viable opportunity to continue that program of rehabilitation.  The imposed punishment should not continue beyond the walls of their sentence.
