Trump Declares Opioid Crisis a ‘Health Emergency’ but Requests No Funds

Posted by on Oct 28, 2017 in Featured, Other Issues, Videos, War on Drugs |

Ken’s Comments:   Trump is merely “jumping on the political bandwagon”, joining countless politicians who see the crisis and do not see the solution! Trump is so ill informed, I am a bit surprised he did not say something like “Opioids are right up there, just as dangerous as Marijuana”!

Ken’s Comments:   Jaws dropped when I gave a short talk in Wilmington, DE, a few months ago, about the inhumane conditions of “detainment” in ICE private prisons.

Each year, the U.S....

Louisiana’s Jefferson Parish moves to video-only inmate visitation Citing security concerns, local sheriff eliminates in-person visits to 1,200-person prison

Ken’s Comments:   Another step backwards! All studies show that in-person visits reduce recidivism and improve inmate behavior! They always cite “security” for their bad policies, and here that is more nonsense from prison officials. This comment is downright laughable: “the agency expects that by eliminating in-person visitations, it will also eliminate the entry of contraband into the facility “almost...
