Public Safety Is More Than Prisons and More Than Crime

Finished my reentry training, back at the post a little more over the weekend. In the meantime, when I talk about how throwing money at prisons takes money away from other areas of public safety, I don't just mean what it does to other crim just efforts. I also mean Taco Bell, Olive Garden, and all the other places which receive far too little inspection and use products that do likewise because there's not enough money for inspectors. But the last tv show or movie about a valiant health inspector fighting a vicious e.coli bacterium didn't get much viewing so we pay no attention. Just too bad for the people jeopardized and actually victimized. Should have gotten shot. Then we'd pay attention.

Enjoy the weekend. Be sure to eat out.
