Last year, the Texas Parole Board shredded the contents of 86,000 packets, believing their contents had been scanned and filed electronically. Not so. Then, to cover the errors, they hired extra helpers, put in overtime, and tried to cover the errors. That cost tax payers, but not nearly as much as it cost the inmates, some of whom will now wait 3-5 years before their case is reviewed again. Both the Texas Inmate Families Association and the guards’ union are calling for a re-do. They want the cases reviewed, and those who qualify released.
