Many of our federal, state and local prisons

Many of our federal, state and local prisons are significantly overcrowded due to an ever increasing inmate population and longer sentences.  Consequently, our prison population is becoming elderly resulting in special age related and health-care requirements.  Additionally, new prisons are not being built to accommodate our prisoners, due to our poor economy.  During the last several decades the private prison industry has been developed and many prisoners have been shipped to these private facilities.  Do these private prisons provide an answer to prison overcrowding and are they equipped to handle the above referenced issues appropriately?  What are some of the problems that have been identified with the private prison industry? How does an inmate end up in a private prison? Your response should be at least 2-3 pages long.
