Razor wire lines the fences and main building of the Lake Erie Correctional Institution in Conneaut, Ohio in this 2005 file photo. The American Civil Liberties Union wants state help with an increase in criminal activity around an Ohio prison privatized last year. The ACLU said Friday that policing the perimeter of the Lake Erie Correctional Institution is overburdening local authorities and creating unsafe conditions. Eight people have been arrested attempting to get contraband into the facility in the past three days. (AP Photo/Scott R. Galvin)
