Security Staff Cuts Planned For Hospital Housing Sex Offenders

From Star Tribune:

ST. PETER, Minn. - More than 50 security jobs at the Minnesota Security Hospital in St. Peter are expected to be cut due to a budget crunch.

That has some lawmakers worried, because the hospital houses the mentally ill and sex offenders and it's near the Gustavus Adolphus College campus.

I don't have much to say about this story other than to hope that the state legislature reviews this plan to make sure that civilly committed sex offenders won't find it easy to walk away from the hospital.
