Here's the statements after TKC BLOG COMMUNITY BREAKING NEWS from earlier today . . .
Joint Statement from Mayor Sly James and County Executive Frank White Regarding Incident at Jackson County Regional Correctional Center
“We are both shocked and deeply troubled to learn of the recently alleged assaults at the Regional Correctional Center. Those responsible will be held accountable and all other necessary changes will be made swiftly. Jackson County and Kansas City are both committed to the original purposes of a regional correctional center. We have and will continue to work towards creating efficiencies while serving our constituencies better. However, those efforts will not be effective as long as misuses of power continue to exist. The County has hired former United States Attorney Todd Graves to conduct an independent and thorough investigation into this matter.”
