Re: “Richmond City Jail Abruptly Ends Its Much-Praised Yoga Program

I think the short-sighted decision of Richmond City Jail officials to end the yoga classes led by Robbie Norris is plain arrogant. It's obvious how much the classes helped those who participated. It's well-documented that yoga is good for maintaining fitness, calming agitation, controlling anger and reducing stress. I read about an inmate who said it helps to banish the "angry thoughts" in his mind. "It was these thoughts that made me commit crimes," he said. I see the decision as another example of employees at the public trough letting their buddies get what they want with little regard for the welfare of the population they are supposed to be serving.
