Posted by on Nov 6, 2019 in Featured, Mental Illness, Other Issues, Prison Abuse |

Thank God that more and more judges are starting to realize that prison abuse, truly atrocious abuse, is the norm all across the land, and they will not swallow attempts by officials to avoid or delay accountability. Here, a 27 year old transgender lady with epilepsy and schizophrenia died while in jail because she could not post $500 bail on a misdemeanor charge! Did she die from medical neglect?

THE 1994 CRIME LAW HOGS THE LEGAL REFORM SPOTLIGHT. BUT A LESSER-KNOWN LAW DESERVES MORE ATTENTION. Yes! Modify or Eliminate the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) – kra – With Letter to Editor

Posted by on Oct 20, 2019 in Featured, Mental Illness, Other Issues, Prison Abuse |

While in prison, helping so many inmates file lawsuits to challenge the cruelty of their conditions of confinement, the rampant abuse, and the extreme medical neglect, I was struck by how awful – what an obstruction to justice – the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA) was! It creates unnecessary roadblocks, is loaded with technical requirements which virtually no inmate can understand, and is flat out extremely unfair! One of the...
