A very dumb thing to do and she will regret it for the rest of her life. No matter what she does it will follow her. Every place she tries for employment will get the info and she will likely not get the job. Doesn't matter if she gets jail time or not she will never stop paying for this idiot move. I can see her paying a fine and doing community service for first time offense.
Old news... Get some new material. Read this two weeks ago.That's why it is called "NEWS" not Recycled.
Cops and Firemen have murdered, robbed drug dealers, planted evidence and committed arson and host of other crimes in our town. You almost don't pull over for the cops anymore as it could be a robbery. If the lights come on drive to a lighted area with lots of witnesses or go to the police station where there are several other cops. If there is only one other cop do not trust them to do the right thing because there are two, keep going until you can get to a safe place. Even the ones that are staight up do not turn on the ones that will rob you. They have a culture if silence. The only way they ever talk is if they save their own skin by turning on their partner. Call someone to let them know what is happening to you and tell them everything you are seeing. Your location, time, what does the cop look like? White, black, asian or hispanic? Bald or full head of hair, does he or she have a mustach? Do not go to a firehouse or station for help with a cop, they will help the cop. Go to well lighted public area and call the police
Your full of S***. I've got an idea the next time someone steals from you, your beaten to a pulp or get in a very bad accident why don't you just call a Drug Dealer for assistance. If your House burns down call the neighborhood Gang Lord. You are an IDIOT !
She won't spend a day in prison - maybe a few hours in a holding cell until her release is arranged. Why? 1st time non-violent and non drug-related offense. But that friend of hers . . . wow. Getting a friend to help you commit a felony for basically nothing! I have trouble getting my buddies to take me to the airport!
This is another Interesting "commentary" masquerading as a news article; the fact that a prison psychologist broke the law, and used the system for her own personal purposes, is of course news, and deserves to be reported. I for one would like to know more about what sort of crime she claimed happened, what her co-conspirator did, (and was charged for) ,and so on. From that point on, this obviously axe-grinding reporter starts her editorializing by dredging up alleged police corruption from 2006. SIX years ago..Police not prison …how does that tie in? Adding even more non-sequitors to an already obviously out-of-control article, she goes on about prison over-crowding. How does over-crowding factor in? If it does, make the connection! Lazy Reporters make for bad articles. I guess if she was doing a report on how a refrigerator ice maker was recalled by the factory, she would tie it in to a story on Glaciers melting in Greenland? I fault not only this reporter for not understanding that she does a great dis-service to the vast majority of hard working journalists by this kind of lazy hackery, but to her editors who allowed a straight forward crime report to devolve into a personal diatribe on the obvious woes of the Prison system. 10-7
Agreed. The worst comment of all is the last paragraph, where the reporter inserts her own opinion that the prison psychologist's actions "give all the more weight" to the US Supreme Court ruling. Absolutely no background facts that the psychologist had not been qualifited or hadn't done her job. Spin, spin, spin until the readers are too dizzy to think objectively.
shes going to have alot of 'friends' on the inside
Reduce to "167% of intended prison capacity"? Sounds a bit redundant. Wouldn't it work better to enlarge the prisons? Too logical for gov't., I guess.
The offenders get alot of things but not internet. The prison system is failing because of the justice system. If you want to watch a dog and pony show go sit in court and watch.
I know what she's saying to herself: was I in my right mind when I hatched this plot? Anyway, unfortunately, she'll have what to do. She'll be able to treat her colleagues. She got her wish, partly. She's in a different neighborhood, not necessarily better.
As a psychologist formerly working in Justice I can say Justice Kennedy has a right to be concerned. Prisoners are not adequately assessed. There are crimes of youth, mental illness, stupidity, wrong place wrong time, passion, hunger, sociopathy amd psychopathy. The one size fits all approach to intervention is not working. It endangers the correctional officers and all those who work in the system, and it does not serve the prisoners or community based offenders well. The psychologists do not receive adequate supervision or support. Solutions have been proposed, Anna Salter and Robert O'hare have brilliant, workable, effective suggestions. A NY Judge has developed an brilliant and effective program for youthful offenders, based in adequate assessment and interventions. But the department stumbles along, cemented into place by politics and out dated policies. I hope Justice Kennedy calls for a total review as the UK is doing.
In case you've missed out on the last 3 years, the rest of the country has other fish to fry that making sure that offenders in prison are assessed properly. If you depend on psycyhologists to assess things, you are in need of assessment yourself. Psychology is not a science, it is an industry.
And how do you know that the solutions you mention are "brilliant, workable, and effective", since they are only proposals and have not been tried? You sound to me like someone who is pouting because your opinions/solutions were given the credence you think they deserved.
