This is jeopardy

Mack-Lemdon, Mr. L.



This is Jeopardy But not with Alex Trebek. It's starring the STATE OF MICHIGAN'S ONE AND ONLY MICHIGAN DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTION (MDOC) Administration. No, we do not have any answers, therefore, you do not have to provide us with any questions. Matter of fact, we are seeking answers because there are significant questions that need to be answered. For example, how is that the Michigan Department of Corrections has decreased its prison population by thousands, yet the MDOC's budget has increased? Or why would the State of Michigan place the lives of corrections officers in jeopardy by forcing them to work over-time numerous times per week to save money instead of hiring new correctional staff? Numerous other questions need answering as well, such as, what sense does it make, regardless of the State of Michigan's goal to save money, to place the lives of corrections officers in danger by over working them? It is well established that prisoners lives are not very important, but why does the State of Michigan devalue the lives of their own employees. I guess the most important question would be, why is the State of Michigan continuing to keep problems as significant as corrections a big secret? Final Jeopardy Twist: Who are the real losers in the State of Michigan Department of Corrections? You have 60 seconds. Some courageous person needs to look into: 1. MDOC Spending; 2. The Parole Board; 3. Prison Programs; and 4. Corrections Wasteful Spending. WHEN YOU DEVALUE CORRECTIONS OFFICERS YOU PLACE BOTH THE LIVES AND THE LIVES OF OTHERS IN JEOPARDY
