Didn't Read the Document, But It's the End of the World!!


David Clarke wants to save about $1.5 million by privatizing jail medical services

There's some guy who "oversees" jail conditions; he doesn't like the idea.

"Clearly, this is a radical change that is completely inappropriate and potentially significantly harmful" to inmates, Shansky said Wednesday. "I believe such a change could result in disastrous consequences."


...Clarke should hold off formally awarding the jail medical contract until Shansky has had a chance to more thoroughly review a private firm's proposal and current conditions at the jail, Shansky said.

Maybe 'reviewing current conditions' and 'reviewing the proposal' --that's what you're paid to do, right?--should precede yapping about "radical", "completely inappropriate" and "disastrous."

But hey, we smell the green thick odor of...............AFSCME-BREATH!!

...The contract would cover medical services at both the jail and the County Correctional Facility-South in Franklin. If the medical care at the jail is privatized, about 110 county nurses, doctors, social workers and administrators would lose their jobs....

Just a co-incidence, I'm sure.
