Default Make prisoner move health safe

The Michigan Department of Corrections has appealed an order by U.S. District Judge Richard Enslen that prevents the department from transferring more than 600 chronically ill and disabled inmates from Southern Michigan Correctional Facility until Enslen approves a plan to assure their safety.
Whatever the outcome of the appeal, the judge is right. Past Corrections practices show a clear danger to the health of those inmates if they are moved without a sound plan for adequate staffing and support services at any prison to which they are sent. Even if the Appeals Court reverses Enslen's order, the department should not transfer those inmates until Enslen and his independent medical monitor agree that it is medically safe.
