PBA Wins Again! Prison Privatization Appeal Dismissed!
Tallahassee: Today the First District Court of Appeal dismissed the Attorney General's appeal of Circuit Court Judge Jackie Fulford's ruling that halted prison privatization in south Florida. The Court wrote that the "Attorney General lacks standing to initiate an appeal on her own."
The Florida PBA challenged the attempt to privatize prisons through "proviso" language in the 2011 - 2012 Budget. The Florida PBA argued that instead of having an open debate on the merits of privatizing existing prisons, the legislature violated Florida statutes and pushed privatization through the hidden recesses of the budget conference process. Judge Fulford agreed.
"This ruling reaffirmed our argument that the Attorney General did not have the authority to appeal the lower court's decision. This was never more than the legislature's last second attempt to privatize public prisons in south Florida," said Matt Puckett, Executive Director of the Florida PBA. "We can now put this issue behind us and move forward with other important issues facing our state."
Yes, they won the battle for 2012, but come 2013 we will all feel the wrath of dirty dick scott. This geek will not stop until the entire prison system in Florida is private. He has been financially rewarded by GEO so he owes them. If we had a real US Attorney General this geek would be fully investigated for his criminal activity but instead Holder is protecting "the rights" of illegal aliens! We're f--ked!!!!!!!!
I use to be against the private prison system but now I am rethinking it. I wonder if it would clean house of alot of the trash that currently work at DOC???
With all the money I gave pba through the years, they owed me big time. Now we are even. Just glad that I do not have to waste anymore money on those losers.
We actually got more than other state people under them. With this new union we just take the biggest hits. I got high risk, bigger pay raises when they were given out etc. Under PBA but under the Teamsters I have just taken bigger hits than others in the state. They are useless it appears.
