Wasn't there a thread on this?

Too small means likely to suffer extrajudicial killing/maiming etc. The State should provide safe prison environment, and, failing that, the proper thing to do is to seek a solution outside of prison.

I think that was the conclusion from the discussions there

i missed that.  but that is what i thought, too.  the basic responsibility of the govt. is to protect its citizens.  that isn't happening here.  i guess it would be too late if he is killed in prison to say he wasn't properly protected, but this seems wrong.  what happens if he violates his probation?  send him then?  well, he won't be any safer in that situation, so i guess this guy can just do whatever the hell he wants.

I think that they have tags on him etc.

It's probably a judgement call, and pretty gutsy of the judge to have made that call. It'll probably be on her mind a lot and for quite a while, wondering about it.

well, i guess it might affect change in the prison system.  if your prisons aren't good enough, the solution is not to let people get away with crime.  the solution is to create better prisons and/or prison systems.  i would gladly pay higher taxes for that.
