Allen Ault admits to being a murderer.
But Ault isn’t behind bars, nor was he tried for his “crimes." He’s currently dean of Criminal Justice Studies at Eastern Kentucky University. But as Ault told an interim joint committee on the judiciary earlier this month, he considers his actions as a director of corrections akin to premeditated murder.
“I have murdered five people as an agent of the state,” he said.
Ault said that many of his former colleagues have committed suicide or retreated into drugs to cope with their actions
“Corrections officials are expected to commit the most premeditated murder possible,” he said. “I mean, I had a policy book that thick. We rehearsed it. How premeditated could it be?”
