Oregon County Extorts Taxpayers By Releasing Accused Murderers
Like they couldn't trim down the welfare budget by making a few able-bodies go to work...From FNC:
A $100 million budget deficit in Oregon's Lane County has prompted the sheriff to release nearly 100 detainees and inmates from his jail, including several accused of killing people. Ninety-two prisoners were freed over three days this month as the jail closed a whole wing of its 507-bed facility. “It was horrifying,” says Lane County Sheriff Tom Turner. “All the effort to get those people into the jail is now gone, wasted.”I understand the U.S. Forest Service regulations, under Clinton's Administration, severely limited the lumber industry. And I can really understand releasing non-violent offenders during difficult financial times, but to release accused murderers waiting for trial? A 507 bed facility couldn't accommodate a few murderers? This is nothing short of extortion.
