State institutions can suffer from prohibitive bureaucracy, private institutions always suffer from corruption. It's the nature of the beast and I would rather well-meaning people having to deal with red-tape than people deliberately trying to manipulate things so they can receive a financial reward. The "free market" and trickle down economics have been proven to not work and were sold to a deluded/ignorant public by those who profit from the manipulated market.The biggest cover ups take place via the state. See thousands of people being killed by incompetence at the hands of the NHS. Good thing there was no profit motive there.
The state typically can't run anything competently. Why would one think that the prison system be any better?
If SERCO or G4S etc stuff something up, they can have their contracts taken off them / be financially penalised.
Stuff ups by the state go unpunished. Zero incentive to perform.
