Is this how Judith Collins intends to lower the Prison population?

Firm set to run Mt Eden prison criticised over UK death
A private prison company due to take over the management of Auckland Central Remand Prison at Mt Eden in August has been criticised for its role in the death of a 14-year-old boy in a British institution.

So the private prison company Judith Collins appointed to run Mt Eden Prison, Serco is in trouble after one of its guards beat up a 14 year old prisoner in the UK, who then went on to commit suicide in his cell, is this how Judith Collins plans to lower the prison population?

Serco of course run the detention camps in Australia, you know the ones where refugees waiting to have their status decided go mad and riot in. Why we would want to pass the running of our prisons over to a private company with such a poor track record overseas makes as much sense as sending your pet Chicken to Colnel Sanders for a holiday.

We are building an empire of suffering for corporate profit, but don't worry, dehumanizing damaged human beings even further won't impact on you until they're released back into society.
