    Corrections Corporation of America used in drug sweeps of public school students in Arizona.

    In Arizona an unsettling trend appears to be underway: the use of private prison employees in law enforcement operations.

    The state has graced national headlines in recent years as the result of its cozy relationship with the for-profit prison industry. Such controversies have included the role of private prison corporations in SB 1070 and similar anti-immigrant legislation disseminated in other states; a 2010 private prison escape that resulted in two murders and a nationwide manhunt; and a failed bid to privatize nearly the entire Arizona prison system.

    I guess private drug dogs work cheaper than municipal union dogs.
