Editorial Response: Prison problems

Editorial Response: Prison problems

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Last week I presented an editorial discussing the prison issues that this state faces. There were many responses. Typically I would give you several of those, but today I am going to only give you one. This is only a paraphrased version of the entire response but I do think it is important enough to share.

To whom it may concern: I am an officer based at Elmore Correctional Facility, Through the course of two to three years, I have witnessed a drastic change in the inmate population as well as the morale of fellow officers.

Again that is a comment from someone that is on the front line. A person who deals with this every day and is doing his job. I could not have said the last line any better. Elected state officials, remember this is what YOU signed up for.
