Re: “Three inmates injured in disturbance at Cummins unit

Laugh if you want to at the comments made by Jon Smith, but the State of Arkansas has a TREMENDOUS problem with overpopulation in our prison system and, unfortunately, a corresponding lack of guards. On 9/4/17, capacity at Cummings was 1,850 per ADC records and inmate population on was 1,921 - 103.8% !! On that same date the Delta Unit was at 129%, the East Unit was at 117%, the North Central Unit was at 115.3%, Tucker was at 110.1%, and the Varner Unit was at 108.6. The overall capacity of ADC was 15,300 and the overall population was 16,220 which is 106% of capacity. This problem is not going away and must be addressed properly by the Governor and Legislature before there are more serious repercussions!!! Similar problems are present in the Parole & Probation Programs - too many in those programs and way, way too few Parole & Probation Officers to properly & safely keep an eye on those folks - over 50,000 !! No one at the Capitol seems to want to address these problems, but just like potholes, they aren't going away until properly addressed.

Re: “Short-sighted Republicans stop planning grant for LR-Hot Springs trail

According to my math, you need to get the 3 votes that were not cast to get to a 10-5 vote that you say is now needed. Blame the 5 who voted against, but it looks as though some blame should be given to the 3 who were not there and/or did not vote.

Re: “Annals of meanness: Senate health bill could affect 400,000 Arkansas children

dead sea squirrel, thanks for taking me off the hook by responding to the post of golfer71909. You spoke with much more kindness than I could have. It would be interesting to see how he would fare living on a poverty level.

Re: “Calling Leslie Rutledge: A good suit to join

Golfer71909, you have a great day, also (just as Razorblade), sitting in front of the tube watching that "fair & balanced" network.
