Asa Hutchinson is right

Posted By on Fri, Jun 26, 2009 at 6:44 AM

The Arkansas Project called my attention to a short item in the Morning News this week about a speech by Asa Hutchinson to a Republican group.

Former Congressman Asa Hutchinson wants an independent review of Arkansas' prison system.

Hutchinson called for an outside panel to recommend changes to the state correctional structure during a speech to the Washington County Republican Women.

An escape in May by two convicted murderers, along with other recently-reported problems, is only part of the reason a review is needed, Hutchinson said. A thorough overhaul of the state prison system hasn't been done in more than 30 years, he said.
