Do Former Inmates Deserve to Be Living in Nursing Homes??

Sure, I may be a little groggy from my Thanksgiving gluttony, but this story regarding the placement of former inmates into nursing homes and assisted living facilities caught my eye.  The Department of Corrections (DOC) is holding a series of meetings with nursing homes, assisted living facilities and other organizations for the purpose of recruiting them to house criminals who have served their jail time and need housing or specialized care.

I’m sure many of these felons genuinely need medical assistance and psychological support after serving time in jail, but this just seems like a recipe for danger.  Feel free to tell the residential coordinator for the DOC, La Trese Schofield, how you feel about placing felons in nursing homes.
