Georgia dumping violent prisoners into nursing homes

Published on December 13th, 2009

Macon.com posted an article about a proposal in Georgia to house sex offenders, violent offenders, those being electronically monitored and those with medical and mental health needs in nursing homes.   The state DOC is working with the state Board of Pardons and Paroles to recruit nursing homes, assisted-living facilities and other organizations interested in housing offenders upon release from prison.  Why would they be interested in bringing these dangerous people into the homes of our parents and grandparents?  The only reason is greed and reckless indifference to the safety of their other residents.

The statewide briefings are designed to serve as an "educational forum" for potential housing service providers, according to a Georgia Department of Corrections news release.  Briefings will be held across the state through February 2010. For more information about the meetings, contact LaTrese Schofield, residential coordinator for the state DOC, at schofl00@dcor.state.ga.us or (404) 463-2947.

Please contact Ms. Schofield and tell her this is a bad idea.
