Default Current news item on out of state placement

If you have a loved one convicted in Hawai'i he may be sent off to a CoreCivic prison in Arizona. Conditions sound frightening.

The article at https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/p...-arizona-v24n2 is long and goes into a lot of detail about one youth who ended up dead.

"In this kind of extreme situation, when inmates aren't kept in-state, you don't have families, reporters, and attorneys to keep an eye on the situation," says Michele Deitch, a senior lecturer at the Lyndon B. Johnson School of Public Affairs at the University of Texas at Austin who specializes in prison oversight. "That makes independent oversight even more essential." The form of oversight can vary. California has an outside agency that monitors the corrections department. In Ohio, a long-standing legislative-oversight committee makes unannounced prison inspections and reports their findings. Hawaii doesn't have any such oversight. And from the beginning, Hawaii's Department of Public Safety (DPS) has shown itself to be aloof when presented with evidence about dangerous conditions facing its inmates in mainland prisons.

We've decided to put a sticky thread in the AZ prison specific forums for people who may have questions about Saguaro. Because it's housing inmates from both Hawaii and Nevada it's a tricky situation as to where to put the information. Also, the information outlined online between CoreCivic/Hawaii/Nevada seems to be pretty out of date so if those with experience would like to share relevant information on that thread it would be helpful and appreciated.
