My question? Why was someone like that allowed in the chapel without stronger supervision? If he is the guilty one... I understand the good that can come from providing for spiritual access for inmates, but where were the protections for staff and volunteers alike, from inmates convicted of violent crimes? I don't see this as just a "freedom of religion" type issue, given this is a prison. I do understand it can help rehabilitate some of the inmates, but I had no idea there were such risks involved in providing that access. :O
