An anonymous, lightly disguised employee of the Maine Department of Corrections has posted a pair of videos in which he presents a series of statements prefaced and followed by assertions that "Lance Tapley is ignorant."
These are the most detailed and substantive comments regarding our four-years-and-counting in-depth investigation into Maine's treatment of inmates to emerge from any source in the Maine Department of Corrections in many months. While the employee takes care to clarify that he is speaking for himself, we can't overlook the opportunity to provide this important perspective on the conditions and treatment Maine prisoners endure.
We urge all readers to view these videos carefully and consider their points. We also urge readers to evaluate the demeanor, tone, and attitude of the person presenting these views, as potential indicators of how this person may view and behave toward the human beings in his care, custody, and control.
