According to heading of the recent Fresno Bee article, it appeared that it could be true that the move could have been the reason for the recent jump in suicide numbers among those women prisoners.
But if you read the whole article, you would find out that the move was not the cause. In the last paragraphs of the article, you find out that the cause was multiple – inadequate staffing, inadequate training of staff, and lying by the staff (certifying that they had done required things that they had not done). In private business, many heads would roll. Whether these highly paid unionized state employees suffer any real consequences remains to be seen.
