TDCJ statistical report published months early

Last year, Grits lodged a complaint that the Texas Department of Criminal Justice Annual Statistical Report needn't take a full year to produce after each fiscal year ends.

To their credit, TDCJ responded by bumping up the release date of the report by many months. 2016 data is online now, whereas in years past the report inexplicably hasn't come out until August.

Thanks to TDCJ chief Bryan Collier and his staff for moving up the timeline.

"Administrative Segregation – A non-punitive, maximum custody status... " from definitions in the report. What a load of bs! It is absolutely punitive, overused, and cruel and unusual punishment.
