Walker's comfort with immigrant kids' imprisonment presaged at Lincoln Hills

Walker's disinterest in the fate of children incarcerated at the southern border 

was presaged by his long disinterest in the fate of children incarcerated inhumanly in a state prison he 'reorganized' to northern Wisconsin from Waukesha County and has never visited.
Walker moves 6 years late on Lincoln Hills humanitarian crisis
noted in 2011 that his closing of the boys' facility long-located in Waukesha County to save a few bucks - - the right treats government consolidations as chess board games while human beings and true public policies are risked  and dismissed- - was a mistake: 
Good-bye Ethan Allen School for Boys, a juvenile justice facility at Wales, as I reported earlier.
The workers are stunned. The plan is bad for them, the kids sent there and the community...Walker gave no real warning.
In fact, Walker closed the Ethan Allen School even though the state had just spent millions on improvements there.

But Walker liked moving jobs to the north, and upending a Jim Doyle initiative to boot, regardless of the consequences, which included mass inmate gassings, as WKOW-TV reported in December, 2015 without any reaction, apparently, by Team Walker.

Then roll forward to this report of mine a year ago:
On Walker's watch, Lincoln Hills is a humanitarian crisis
Victimized guard says Walker shares blame for her beating...
Now there is reporting of the details surrounding a suicide attempt at the female unit at the youth prison that has left a teenage-girl in this state facility with permanent injury... 
Do you remember this disgusting story about conditions in the state's youth prison which we the taxpayers pay for?
