No News Is Good News


Maine's Department of Corrections is investigating how video of an officer pepper-spraying an inmate bound in a restraint chair was released to the media. Officials say the fact the video got out shows they need to tighten up their security. Capt. Shawn Welch was fired after the incident, but that decision was later overturned by the state corrections commissioner, who instead suspended Welch for 30 days.
