Warden Arrested

The director of the Puente Grande prison in Jalisco, one of the common destinations for the nation's most dangerous criminals, has been arrested by Interpol in Mexico City for suspected links to organized crime. Stories like this are painfully common (here's another one from last week), and a reminder that while revamping prisons won't win a whole lot of plaudits for lawmakers (compared to, say, a strict new kidnapping law), it's a fairly pressing need.
