As individual citizens, the solution begins with "US" one person at a time, one phone call at a time, "ONE" blog at a time.

If you have a procedural concern, or a Human rights concern, about a Prison inmate in East Jersey State Prison, be sure to call the Star Ledger. If the Star Ledger recieves enough telephone calls, the need will demand a publication of various issues, that Prison Administrators, And New Jersey Dept. of Corrections
would prefer were kept. "INHOUSE"

It costs $33,000 of taxpayer money for DOC, to house a prison inmate. Do we know how each Prison Administrator utilized the tax money.

Did you know that a formewr Prison Administrator from NJSP, changed the Prison Status to "highRish' for the purpose of receiving more money from the state. With that decision, vocational programs were stopped for the inmates and 22 hr lockdown commenced.

If we as citizens are tired of the revolving door of repeat prison offenders, than logic says, hold administrators responsible and transparent, when the administrator makes a fiscall decision. Especially when the fiscall decision will have a "DIRECT IMPACT" on recidivism statistics
