Eric Holder Proposes Services To Newly Released Inmates: Could Be Obama Free Phone Part II


On Monday, the Department of Justice announced a new program which Attorney General Eric Holder says “will require all 200-plus halfway houses in the federal system to offer standardized treatment to prisoners with mental health and substance abuse issues.” Is it just me or is anyone else wondering why if a prisoner is locked up for years, away from drugs and alcohol, would they need treatment for substance abuse once they got out?

In addition to those programs, the halfway houses will “have to provide greater assistance to inmates who are pursuing job opportunities, such as permitting cell phones to be used by inmates and providing funds for transportation.” Looks like a setup for Obama FREE phone, Part 2.

Here’s what Holder said about the new program (GOPUSA Reports):

Once fully implemented, these services will be available to every single one of the approximately 30,000 inmates who are released through halfway houses each year. This will ensure consistency and continuity of care between federal prisons and community-based facilities. And it will enhance the programs that help prisoners overcome their past struggles, get on the right path, and stay out of our criminal justice system.

These important changes and others are codified in BOP’s published requirements for halfway houses – which will be posted online this week. Over the next 30 days, those who operate halfway houses will have the opportunity to provide feedback on these newly proposed requirements. And I encourage members of the public to visit this site, learn about these tools, and make your voices heard as well – so we can all take an active part in constructing the more effective, more efficient, and more just system that everyone in this country deserves.

Just last year, “more than 30,000 federal inmates passed through a halfway house.” That’s a lot of inmates and a lot of bus fare and cell phones. So, what do you think America? Should our taxpayer money be spent on programs such as this?

  1. He’ll fuckin no !!! Let them get it for themselves !!!! I support my family and never been on any assistance !!!! They do drugs or alcohol on their own ! No on forces them to screw their lives up . What jobs available ? All the illegal yes illegal not undocumented has tha American jobs thanks to Obummer and asshole Holder that can run their own houses !!!!!! Impeach all the shit out of the out house because it is no longer the White House , it’s full of shit !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I genuinely hope that the Republican Leadership will get on board with this and actually support these reforms. I cannot stand Eric Holder, and think he should have been fired several years ago, but in this instance, the Attorney General is correct! For far too long, we have neglected this segment of our society, and it’s time that we correct this deficiency! We’ve so “Strong” on enforcement and punishment over the last twenty years, that we have forgotten one aspect that we as a society should be focused upon, which is re-entry into society after a prisoner has paid his debt to society. I don’t know that providing cell phones is the answer; (Although there are literally no pay phones anymore!) but at least to provide some type of support network for prisoners upon their re-entry back into society should be emphasized, hopefully in order to stem recidivism!

  3. a free phone might not be such a bad idea as they can be tracked with those phones and the authorities would know there whereabouts at all times.

  4. I usually hate everything Obama has anything to do with,cause he only helps foreigners.but this is pretty good.A person gets out of jail they need some help or depression will set n and they’ll be back on drugs,back into crime.At least this will give some of them a little incentive.

    but you know racists Holder and Obama,they can’t do anything right.
