“The governor has called for all non-essential movement to halt, and this isn’t essential,” Blackwell said. “And the governor has the authority to shut down the movement of these prisoners. The counties, the state, let’s just freeze everything until we figure out what’s going on.”

    Well, this preventative measure is just timely and just. We can't be too careful during this pandemic since inmates in other states have been tested positive. It's important that the authorities implement all measures to combat this pandemic. web hosting Sydney

    I think this is a great decision from the officers. And the government should look at their advice. Here you need to visit https://www.rushmypapers.me/ to complete your quality task easily. Because as we all know that the spread of coronavirus is very fast. And if we transfer the prisoners from one place to another. It's dangerous for them.

    I agree with this. Inmate transfers is not a necessary action to take in this pandemic. Prevention is better than cure and by postponing the transfer, the transmission of the virus can be avoided. Sydney criminal lawyers
