For-profit company behind the execution of Troy Davis
By STEPHON JOHNSON Amsterdam News Staff
When Troy Davis was murdered by the state of Georgia last week, it was not a nameless, faceless bureaucrat who oversaw his execution.
It was Dr. Carlo Musso, who owns CorrectHealth, a for-profit company that provides what they call “cost effective” health care to prisoners, who managed the process. He does this work under the umbrella of another company he owns, Rainbow Medical Associates, which, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, is contracted by the Georgia Department of Corrections to do its executions.
While some may defend Rainbow Medical Associates as capitalism in action, Musso might find himself in a heap of trouble-of the legal kind-that could do more damage than the backlash from the Davis execution.
