What Happened to Halfway House Reform?

Remember the " outrage"? State Senators sending letters demanding answers. Assembly leaders vowing " more hearings and more answers". News reporters doing real investigative reports. Legislative hearings with tough questions. Powerful people like Palatucci and Clancy trying to cover their tracks to save their multi-millin dollar business.

Now? NOTHING!

Follow up hearings? Nope.

New legislation? Nope

Answers to questions being made public? We are still waiting.

It is well known that the Halfway House incarceration business has been very generous to many legislators on both sides of the aisle. This past generosity apparently has had an effect on the " reform" initiative.

I hate to be cynical but has money once again trumped " right" ?

All of this silence must be of design.

Am I wrong?
