    ROME — Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 women inmates at a Roman prison Thursday evening, the first time any pope included no men in the Holy Thursday ritual. The Church’s practice of washing the feet of 12 people is intended as a commemoration of the moment at the Last Supper when Jesus washed the feet of the 12 apostles before commissioning them as priests to celebrate the Eucharist, according to Catholic belief.

    New York state prison inmates would get nearly $2,600 in taxpayer-funded pocket money to make ends meet after serving just six months in the slammer in a new bill making the rounds in Albany. The proposal from two Big Apple Democrats in the state legislature would up the amount of “gate money” given to ex-cons from the current $40 — with the money used to pay for housing, transportation and other expenses, according to the Center for Employment Opportunities, which is backing the bill. “Every year, thousands of individuals return to our communities, often with little more than the clothes...

    Washington state is releasing Level-3 sex offenders from McNeil Island. Called "the worst of the worst" by the federal government, this group of offenders includes convicted pedophiles that are likely to re-offend. They will be resettled into residential neighborhoods in halfway homes operated by a private company. Washington Democrats passed legislation in 2021 that amended state law to make it easier to equally distribute conditionally released sexually violent predators which they refer to as "residents" in counties across the state. The legislation established what lawmakers called "fair share principals," requiring each county in the state to provide community-based housing for...

    OKLAHOMA CITY — Two Oklahoma death row inmates facing executions in the coming months offered firing squad as a less problematic alternative to the state's three-drug lethal injection, one of their attorneys told a federal judge on Monday. The two inmates — Donald Grant and Gilbert Postelle — want U.S. District Judge Stephen Friot to grant them a temporary injunction that would delay their upcoming executions until a trial can be held over whether Oklahoma's three-drug lethal injection method is constitutional. A trial is set to begin before Friot on Feb. 28, but Grant is scheduled to be put to...

    California has paved the way for male prison inmates to be transferred to women's prisons, which has raised concerns about the safety and welfare of both the female inmate population and female corrections officers. Over 255 men who identify as either female or "nonbinary" have in recent months requested to be transferred to women's prisons on the basis of self-declared “gender identity,” according to multiple reports. The onslaught of such requests was precipitated by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s signing of the Transgender Respect, Agency, and Dignity Act, which requires the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to inquire of every individual...

    A scheme supposedly gave Scott Peterson and other California inmates COVID-19 unemployment benefits. Attorneys described it as “the most significant fraud on taxpayer funds in California history.” State and federal prosecutors investigated “fraud in the pandemic relief system administered by the state Employment Development Department [EDD].” For some reason, California does not have “a system that ‘cross matches’ prison and jail data with unemployment claims.” San Mateo County District Attorney Stephen Wagstaffe’s office discovered fraud months ago. The office filed charges against 22 people who allegedly applied “for benefits while incarcerated or helping an inmate to do so – felonies...
