At this point, my impression of private prisons is so dire I might cheer for an earthquake that wrecked one.

(As long as everyone got out safely, of course.)

It really is a horrible idea.

I cheer the spirit behind the idea, but not the idea itself. I'd be terrified that there is insufficient planning (or caring) for what to do in such a situation.

Now, if they were all condemned as unlivable due to poor construction and such, in a manner that demonstrated that the profit-driven free market can't be trusted to handle such potential necessary cost-overruns the way a government can, and it actually changed the debate that some idiots continue to raise about private enterprise being better, well, that would be pretty nice.

I'm concerned that that private prisons and prison guard unions will lobby successfully for increased sentences for something else.

Spoken like someone who knows their history all too well....
