Re: “In Report to Governor, Smith Proposes Prison Reforms

"DOC has been working to develop a culture of continuous improvement," If the current mess DOC has created for itself is continuous improvement, I’d hate to see the alternative. Just sayin

Re: “Despite Discrepancies, St. Albans Officials Stand by Police Chief

Are we sure the DOC isn't running the St. Albans Police Department?

Re: “Newport Prison Leaders Placed on Leave

Jackthes.... not sure if it could be worse, probably Touchette trying to save his job by showing he's "tough" and suspended them before the Secretary of AHS could suspend Stone and others at Chittenden. Menard must have seen it coming and retired at the right time. I think the legislature needs to hold some special hearings and start at the top taking action and don't stop until they've drained the swamp that is Vermont Corrections.

Re: “Vermont Prisons Lack Independent Abuse Reporting Hotline

Time for a DOC ombudsman and a commission appointed by the governor with members from specific professions to investigate and oversee the prison system. With subpoena power and contempt authority, much like a coroners inquest. Governor put you money where your mouth is and do something. This needs to be done yesterday.

Re: “Newport Prison Leaders Placed on Leave

It seems the problems get worse. Rutherford should have been investigated 10 years ago at Southern State. It’s time to clean house at DOC. Commissioner, Deputy Commissioner, all directors - they all need to go. Newport has had its share of problems over the years and once again... everybody knew but did nothing. When is the Governor and legislature going to wake up and take action. The time is now...actually it was about 10 years ago but this is the result of mismanagement and a failure to supervise. The state of DOC is beyond pale. I’m really surprised other administrators at Newport weren’t relieved of duty... but I’m sure it’s coming.
