Spike, I agree. The letter writer is all over the place and seems to hold a lot of personal animosity.

Some truth (and thanks Bill O'Reilly) some bloviating from a former guard.The city does not control, nor does the county, any of his complaints regarding the prison system and mos are: the state system. The letter blurs lines between county, state and federal. A discussion about prison systems, the law and approaches to corrections would be interesting. This is filled with apparent personal resentment, half-fact and has little to do with crime or corrections in Williamsport. Finally, the writer knows the exact legal purpose of prisons vs. penitentiaries, the whys and the changes over history, but chose not to expand.

WAIT the crime will come. You think because a person is a doctor or lawyer they are exempt from crime.
