WTF of the day: The Inmate Next Door Residents angry over plan to move prisoners.....

Josh and Lauren Egan were newly married when they bought their first home in Rocky Hill, Conn., and were looking forward to raising a family in the Hartford suburb.

Now, they and other residents of their neighborhood worry that they will be living alongside child molesters, rapists and other ex-cons. The state has contracted with a private company to move severely ill prisoners -- who are being paroled or released from prison for medical or compassionate reasons -- into a former nursing home that sits right behind their house.

"It's prisoners living next door, and it's not one or two of them. It's 95 of them," said Josh Egan. "We're going to call it what it is. It's not a nursing home, it's a prison. They are prisoners, coming from prison. My grandmother is in a nursing home. This is definitely not where I'd send my grandmother."

The facility has been vacant for about a year and a half. The state has contracted to funnel what it says are the most debilitated prisoners -- those at the end of life; suffering from Alzheimer's disease or dementia; or otherwise incapable of caring for themselves -- to the nursing home. By doing so, they estimate they will save about $6 million of state taxpayer money in prisoner health costs. When inmates who require 24-hour skilled nursing care are incarcerated, the state picks up the whole tab. Yet if the prisoners are moved to a nursing facility, the federal Medicaid program pays 50 percent of the cost, though that still represents money provided by taxpayers.

That would be a concern, especially because some people with dementia (including women) can be violent to the point of killing others in nursing homes. That actually happened here in my province, some male patient with dementia killed one woman while she slept and went to another floor and then badly wounded another.

Time to move.

Oh, it's not the first time. It also happened in the States, so one nursing home installed sensors. So, say at 11:00 p.m. they know nobody should be roaming around and if anyone enters anyone elses room, or the demented patient takes a walk when it's time to sleep, the alarms go off.

Well, I don't think I have the nerve to end it all, so I guess I'll learn the ukelele for the get togethers and sleep a big stick and knife.

I'm thinking we should all retire to a warm island and drink red wine all day and make some random oil paintings.
