Why they go back to business as usual:
Of those released, Quinn said 56 are back in state custody. Of those, 48 are charged with violating the terms of their release, and eight have been charged with new offenses. Six were arrested for retail theft or drugs and one for domestic assault. Another inmate released Sept. 22 after an aggravated drunken driving conviction was arrested on the same charge less than a month later, records show.And the traditional finger pointing begins:
Gov. Pat Quinn admitted Wednesday that state corrections officials made a "mistake" in putting hundreds of inmates back on the street after just a few weeks in prison and said he didn't know about his own administration's cost-cutting decision beforehand.
Doncha' just love politicians?
