Head-to-Head on HB 516

Nathaniel Hoffman has a great head-to-head piece over at PaleoMedia addressing the opposing viewpoints of Sen. Denton Darrington (R-Declo) and Rep. Nicole LeFavour (D-Boise) regarding House Bill 516.

As was mentioned here earlier, Darrington's blocking of this particular legislation is ludicrous.

Darrington states: "Let us show compassion to those for whom treatment is appropriate in or out of prison, and let us continue to properly incarcerate those who are destroying the lives of our people. "

His definition of compassion and mine must not be the same. He's way off base.
