The number of inmates incarcerated for probation violations staggers me. Inmates who "drop a slip" or communicate with an ombudsman receive even harsher treatment. Incarceration is the punishment - Vermin and infestation, physical and mental abuse shouldn't be "included."

Far too many people are being incarcerated I this state for small crimes, while others go free becuase they can afford better representation to keep them out of the system.
