Per Salon, the Florida Atlantic Owls grant naming rights to the GEO Group, a for-profit prison company, for a $6 million donation. The company has faced numerous lawsuits in relation to the deaths of up to ten prisoners.
“It’s like calling something Blackwater Stadium,” Bob Libal, the executive director of Grassroots Leadership, a social justice group that opposes private prison systems, told the Times. “This is a company whose record is marred by human rights abuses, by lawsuits, by unnecessary deaths of people in their custody and a whole series of incidents that really draw into question their ability to successfully manage a prison facility."
It's being called "Owlcatraz." Makes the Trohl Center look good.
