Re: “ICE's National Nerve Center Keeps a Low Profile in Lefty Vermont

Really Tom? These jobs are just government jobs, funded by our tax dollars. They aren't "good jobs" because we just pay for them through higher and higher taxes. This is a classic bait and switch. Saint Patrick bringing home the bacon over and over. Government pork. Its telling that 7daze couldn't get a single person who worked there to actually comment for this story. Great reporting.

Re: “Vermont Inmate No. 144711 Is a 90-Year-Old Veteran

@Liz Leyden Having dementia doesn't make you a criminal. You've obviously never had someone in your family suffer from this horrible disease. Consider yourself lucky and blissfully ignorant.

Re: “Vermont Inmate No. 144711 Is a 90-Year-Old Veteran

There used to be a safety net, as distasteful as it may seem to some, the Vermont State Hospital that was part of a system discarded by Shumlin after Irene. There were, from time to time, patients who were much too disruptive to be unsupervised when required interactions take place. These patients could be very aggressive leading to many staff injuries but it was felt at the time correctly that prison would be much worse for them. There is no easy answer, a person who is experiencing dementia cannot be expected to exercise appropriate impulse control.
