Sen. Linda Lopez Statement on Aug. 18 Tucson Inmate Escape

“While awaiting answers from Governor Jan Brewer for a prison break resulting in a nationwide manhunt, yet another inmate walks away from state custody on her watch,” said Sen. Linda Lopez, Senate Democratic Whip (D-Tucson). “State budget cuts are creating real public safety issues in our local communities where now six schools are on lockdown.

“Governor Brewer has failed to protect the people in Arizona from dangerous inmates while also failing to provide support for prison employees who are working hard to secure our safety with fewer resources,” said Lopez.
