Scott Walker is "irate" that a Community Corrections Center inmate was able to stay out of custody undetected long enough to shoot and kill Douglas Mitchell.
Milwaukee County residents should be irate, too, not only about the senseless loss of life, but also about the long-standing, clear evidence that much about the House of Correction, which includes the CCC, is simply broken.
There needs to be an independent look how this entire facility is staffed, funded, and functioning. Scott Walker, who presided over much of its deterioration, should not be the one to conduct the review.
And the JS, which apparently is the official newspaper of the Scott Walker re-election campaign, really needs to do a bit more than reprint his talking points.
Capper over at folkbum has done a nice job of covering House of Correction issues.
