    It’s ok our department of corrections said so as the treatment they offer provides jobs, spend tax dollars on keeping these predators out of prison ! It’s working great except that it doesn’t work. So then they say only if we had more money it would work. We just need more lazy state workers to not do there jobs and these kids would be safe. The tax payer has been taken to the cleaners because the legislature doesnt take the time to understand how much money is wasted on poor results based on false statistics.
