Why, you ask, is a free market advocate in favor of ending private prisons? Simple: because these facilities aren’t “private” at all.
The reason why should be obvious. Prisoners are their only “customer”, if you want to call them a customer at all; the “customers” are provided by the government, who pays private prison companies for their incarceration. The only obligation to the customer that the prison has is to make sure he or she begins and ends their term in one piece. So the for-profit prisons themselves have every incentive to cut costs and cheat regulations, as this means more money to the shareholders’ bottom line.
