Prison bosses on carpet

Posted By on Thu, Jul 30, 2009 at 4:39 PM

Twitters from all over suggest legislators gave Prison Director Larry Norris and Correction Board Chairman Benny Magness a pretty good going over -- Republican lawmakers seemed to be at the forefront -- over a lack of public dislcosure about untoward incidents in prisons. The case of the inmate who nearly died after being left in his own waste -- first reported fully by the AP -- was at the top of the list of concerns.

Tweets of the Day from Channel 4:

Sen. Hendren: Just because you are in prison doesn't mean you don't have a voice in this marble building.

Small crowd starts clapping in hearing after Sen. Hendren says inmates deserve representation
