SACRAMENTO, Calif. – California parole agents spoke to the woman who was held captive by a convicted rapist for 18 years and bore his two children but never bothered to follow up, according to a report obtained by The Associated Press.
The revelation, yet another embarrassment for the state corrections department in the case, details how parole agents missed another opportunity to rescue Jaycee Dugard. It was contained in documents obtained Wednesday under the California Public Records Act.
The report, prepared by the attorney general's office, was sent to lawmakers in advance of their vote last week to settle with the Dugard family for $20 million

Because as GOVERNMENT/STATE/UNION workers, they are able to simply hide behind the fact that they were "just doing their job," or "follow-ups weren't in their job description" or it's not their job to "go above and beyond," or "they were overloaded with cases," or whatever cockamamie excuse they gave...BUT, since they "technically" did nothing wrong, they will get to keep their job, likely get a promotion and a pay raise--another example of your tax dollars at work!!! Ain't that just peachy?!
