In praise of Sheriff Lewis, and his deputies

From our Jail Yo-G...

One of the prisoners asked, "please, teach us all the Asanas?" He handed his Teacher a lined piece of paper, with stick figures drawn on both sides of it depicting various Asanas, sometimes with arrows indicating a movement associated with the pose. It was carefully folded, and cared for, but stained, worn and well-read. "These are the ones we know. We have written down the ones we have learned, and practice them."

The duty of Justice is performed through its administration, which requires both honor and skill.

Sheriff Lewis, Captain Smith, Sergeant Roundtree, and all the Deputies of the Mesa County Sheriff's Office should be praised for their Jail Yoga and Jail Meditation program, which not only provides opportunities for the improved mental and physical health of the inmates, but also a means by which to secure the future safety and wellbeing of the entire community.  Their preventative efforts, not only in the jail, but in the County's most troubled neighborhoods, to reduce the likelihood of crime and recidivism - especially against the constraints of a greatly underfunded budget - is admirable and presents an example worth emulating to others in law enforcement.
