So I was reading the recent report released by the John Howard Association concerning the mental health treatment In Illinois Department of Corrections.
Its interesting reading and its all about a Lawsuit settlement that has been in the Courts for years. Strangely, as I read this report there is no mention of any of the Great Attorneys and Law Firms that gave so much time, effort and themselves fighting for the voiceless and in cases the helpless men and women suffering in Illinois Prisons. I asked several people to read the report and asked them who do you think fought this lawsuit and everyone had the same opinion (John Howard Assoc.).
Then I asked why they thought that and they again responded the same, there are repeated statements like JHA has been pushing for these changes for years, If you have any questions about the case please contact John Howard Association.
Interesting that there is no mention of the actual Attorneys from the Rasho case. And let’s be fair: JHA did not say specifically that they were a part of this case or changes. But they sure don’t give credit to those that actually were. JHA did write this report and they are willing to answer any questions about the case even though they had absolutely nothing to do with the case at all.
Then again it seems to be a common practice of certain groups to mislead donors into thinking that they actually had something to do with significant changes that affect groups that are suffering for financial gains. This is so misleading!
