No new library for Knoxville. If Knoxvillians had their way, they’d say no to every change and new expense. In other Knoxville news, they put someone who is clearly a danger to society in jail. I’ve visited and interviewed teens at Taft (yes, including one of these teens) and adults at Brushy Mountain and people come out of jail worse than when they went in jail. I’ve said it before and I say it again, jail is ONLY for people who are a danger to others. It is not a place where anyone gets reformed or learns their lesson. Martha Stewart doesn’t belong there but despite this woman’s child-like appearance, she does belong in jail. Do not expect her to make any changes for the better because of jail but do know that her life could have turned out differently if interventions had taken place when she was much younger. Even when justice seems fair it is still sad.
