Critics challenge Milwaukee sheriff on inmate monitoring change
from The Journal Sentinel
The decision by Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. to virtually shut down an inmate electronic monitoring program prompted a heated exchange, with the county's chief judge saying the move artificially boosted the jail population. Meanwhile, several county supervisors and others blasted the sheriff's move. Clarke, who didn't attend a hearing on the subject by the County Board's Judiciary Committee, was faulted as shortsighted, petty and vindictive for curbing the jail alternative program.
