The Attorney General for the State of Michigan recently investigated the security of a prison after a break out last winter. And, he made several recommendations.
Apparently, the local TV news team was having trouble locating any officials who would comment on these recommendations. So, they interviewed the mayor of Ionia, a small city near the prison.
Now, the mayor of Ionia has no financial or jurisdictional approval for anything that the prisons do. But, he did get to appear on TV and express his indifference to the recommendations. And, the new team did get an interview from an official.
It is too bad that the Drain Commissioner was not available as it would have made for a much more interesting interview.
