Software bugs reportedly keep Arizona inmates jailed past release dates

From: Software bugs reportedly keep Arizona inmates jailed past release dates | Ars Technica:

A failure to update critical prison management software has kept hundreds of incarcerated people in Arizona behind bars longer than they should be, according to a whistleblower report.

Hmm, how could that be? ….

…. neither inmates nor their families should contact anyone to request an eligibility review. “This is done automatically based on system programming, which generates a list… “

… ah, what could possibly go wrong.

That’s some high pressure programming responsibilty right there.

“We knew from day one this wasn’t going to work,” a source in the Department of Corrections told KJZZ. “When they approved that bill, we looked at it and said ‘Oh, shit.'”

And some hindsight for good mearure too!
