Re: “Idaho's New Prison Scandal

None of this corruption could have gone on unless Butch Otter wanted it to go on. The minuscule fine levied against CCA for their many years of cheating the state, and thereby the taxpayers, is proof positive of that. He certainly didn't want that bunch turning state's evidence on him. They had given him $20,000 in campaign contributions and spread a lot more around on Republican legislative leadership.

Re: “Spokane Confirms First Measles Infection in 20+ Years

If someone came up to you on the street and said that they were from an organization that made up fantasies about "weapons of mass destruction," invaded a country that had not had any for years, and blamed an attack on the U.S. on that country, caused the deaths of over a million people and caused five million refugees to flee that country, and finally got 4,500 young American men and women killed and spent trillions that they had to borrow in the process, what would you say when they asked you to vote for one of their candidates?

Re: “Boise Weekly's Top 14 Stories of 2014

Boise Weekly missed the boat on the Corrections Corporation of America fraud and abuse while operating the state's prison at Kuna, and the subsequent FBI investigation of the corporation, which contributed heavily to Otter.

Re: “His Final Placement: How, After 36 Placements, An Idaho Foster Child Ended Up Behind Bars

Sounds like, given the boy's history of arson, which the state failed to disclose, the state should be on the hook for the replacement of the barn, contents and outbuilding.

Its behavior was dangerous and unprofessional.

I'm a long retired state child protection social worker.

Please stop smoking. You need to stick around for the resolution of your suit. Idaho needs you!

Re: “Video: Public Defenders, ACLU Decry Idaho's 'Thin' Support For Public Defenders

When it comes to rights of defendants, there should be a big shout out for the ACLU's Monica Hopkins and for Rebecca Boone, the AP reporter who ferreted out the truth about the violence and fraud that dominates the operation of the Corrections Corporation of America-run prison at Kuna.

Tea Party types don't care much for the 14th, 16th and 17th Amendments, either.

Re: “UPDATE WITH VIDEO: State Police Arrest Former Legislator, Add the Words Protesters at Idaho Statehouse

Idaho state executives and legislators have been protecting the Corrections Corporation of America for a dozen years. However, they have finally had to throw the corporate bums out. They are dragging their feet behind history! Add the words!
