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

The elimination of a program so highly beneficial and so strikingly cost-free is deeply troubling.  If Internal Program Director Dr. Scarbrough were truly interested in reducing recidivist rates, how could this decision be justified without a statement (at least to Norris) from the Justice Center specifying his infractions?

Although I am no statistician, I find the data Scarbrough employs in her dissertation to be suspect, and the "cost-savings" in her conclusion wishful: (http://sarahscarbrough.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/scarbrough-dissertation.pdf)

On a personal note, I have known Robbie Norris well for 20 years.  His character is transparently impeccable; his service as a yoga teacher exemplary.
