Radio news questions Perry PREA stance in light of consultant report

On Texas Public Radio, LBJ School instructor Michele Deitch and TDCJ guard union president Lance Lowry were interviewed yesterday on the subject of Gov. Rick Perry's declaration that Texas won't comply with new Prison Rape Elimination Act standards, honing in on contradictions between Perry's characterization of PREA requirements and the actual consultant's recommendations first discovered by this blog via open request.

They also discussed ongoing litigation over excessive heat in Texas prisons and today's House committee hearing on mental health and the justice system. Give it a listen.
