Oregon to close youth sex offender cottages at MacLaren
State officials plan to close the three closely guarded cottages that house sex offenders at MacLaren Youth Correctional Facility in Woodburn, The Oregonian has learned.
Plans call for transferring about 75 convicted sex offenders into other "close custody" units elsewhere in Oregon or, potentially, into less secure halfway houses run by private nonprofits.
The closures, set to occur by Oct. 1, are the result of state budget cuts approved by the Legislature.
Of coarse the ONLY solution is to release sex offenders on the public. There is NOTHING else that the Youth Authority could do. It's not like they have ever made a claim like this:
OYA is the only juvenile justice agency in the nation with an Office of Minority Services.
Sometimes being the "only one" to do something means that you are doing it wrong. But hey, if someone needs to get raped so that the OYA can keep Lily E. Caceres, Minority Services Hispanic Coordinator on the job then so be it.
But these are great priorities, it's not as if their class on Cultural Competencies & Overview of OMS services is 4 hours long while the class on Contraband is a measly hour.
You know what else is more important than locking up rapists? Providing no charge tattoo removal! And of coarse you can't have a tattoo removal program without a Tattoo Removal
This is just me spending 10 minutes on the OYA website. A public records request for the working job titles of everyone in this department and then doing a search for the terms "diversity" and "multicultural" would only show how much more of this nonsense exists.
