Default The Obama administrationís plan to deal with elderly inmates isnít working.

The Obama administrationís plan to deal with elderly inmates isnít working. Can it be fixed?


"A bipartisan group of U.S. senators led by Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) has asked the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) to take a fresh look at expanding compassionate release programs for elderly inmates. The attention is long overdue.

From 2009 to 2013, the number of federal prisoners over the age of 50 increased by 25 percent even as the figure for the incarcerated under age 50 dropped. Remarkably, the BOP houses more than 10,000 inmates who are in their 60s, 70s or 80s."
