Kansas declares staffing emergency at most crowded prison

TOPEKA, KS (AP) -- Kansas declared an emergency Tuesday at its most crowded maximum-security state prison over what Gov. Laura Kelly called "serious staffing shortages" inside a lockup that's had multiple inmate disturbances over the past two years. The declaration from Interim Corrections Secretary Roger Werholtz allows the El Dorado Correctional Facility to require employees to work longer shifts.

The current state of kid-glove prisons is responsible for the staffing issues and discipline problems. Bring back corporal punishment and indemnify guards for "offenses" against prisoners. I can't imagine what normal person would want to walk in to a situation where the prisoners literally have more protections than you do. There needs to be a fear of authority in terms of appropriately administered punishment.

Less staffing is required when it’s locked down 24/7. Prison ain’t spoda be fun.

The easiest way to solve Kansas prison overcrowding? Hire Jean Petersucker Baker as a prosecutor. Nobody goes to prison.

By all means keep the thousands of marijuana offenders locked up, some of them for life. Our laws are draconian. We have more people in prison than Stalin did. We have 5% of the world's population and almost 25% of the world's prisoners.
