Editorial: Federal Oversight of California Prisons Still Needed
A Monterey County Herald editorial argues that "Gov. Arnold SchwarzeneggerÂ and other California officials should stop trying to fight the federal courts over management of the state's deeply troubled prison system and the dysfunctional health care operations within the prisons." It adds, "The energy spent on trying to get federal Judge Thelton Henderson to back off would be better spent working with him to fix the problems that caught the bench's attention in the first place."
