America’s Most Famous Jailer Hangs Up His Keys: http://goo.gl/mkmXsI

The linked article describes him as America’s most famous jailer. Burl Cain
recently resigned as the warden of Louisiana’s Angola maximum security
prison. For 21 years Cain ran the largest prison in the state that
incarcerated the greatest proportion of its citizens than any other. Cain
is outspoken about the power of inmate rehabilitation through Jesus Christ
and is known as a strong proponent of redemption. The prison has offered
many different programs to help the men there develop their God-given
entrepreneurial skills. Warden Cain resigns with the specter of possible
inappropriate business dealings looming in the background. Several of
Cain’s private business dealings seemed to violate ethical standards and
personally benefit the warden. The criminal probe and sudden resignation
seem to be an effort to maintain Cain’s positive and progressive legacy.
While the warden, he established a Bible College at the prison, as well as
other Christian influence programs to seek to change the hearts and lives
of these hardened offenders. These Christian influence programs were
reported to have reduced violence in the prison and improved inmate
rehabilitation.
