Who’s really bringing contraband into jails? Our 2018 survey confirms it’s staff, not visitors – When jails cut family visits in the name of security, advocates should demand evidence.

I have said in numerous articles over six years now, that it is staff, not visitors! Indeed, much of what prisons claim to do in the name of security is utter bullshit! Like throwing inmates who dare speak out about prison abuse and abominable medical neglect into isolation cells. They claim “security” because judges will not interfere when they say that, saying that prison personnel (not judges) are the best ones to conduct the...

Madness in the Streets: Mental Illness, Homelessness and Criminal Behavior

Posted by on Dec 9, 2018 in Featured, Mental Illness, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

Our internet friend, Kevin Shinnick, sent me this article. Read the many related articles on this website concerning this neglected issue, the neglect of which costs YOU about $444 BILLION annually! One major problem is that at least 1/4 to 1/3 or more (nobody knows the real number) of our more than 2 million people in prisons and jails have one or more serious mental illnesses, and receive no effective treatment! Excerpts from the Article:...

God Bless the litigation team at PLN’s parent organization, HRDC!  Now they need to win their much bigger case with the same issues in Florida! Just look at the BULLSHIT  spouted by D O C personnel: according to Major Kirk Keller, Greene County’s jail administrator. Keller said HRDC’s correspondences with inmates were prevented out of safety concerns, in part because there were staples in some of the literature. “Staples are often used in...

Texas Ruling To Enable Daycare Licensing At Migrant Holding Sites

Posted by on Dec 6, 2018 in Featured, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

Only at the hands of Texas politicians (here, judges) could a prison be called a “daycare”! This is a dreadful ruling, because those who know what really goes on in these ICE facilities, operated by huge private prison corporations, know that these are among the worst prisons in America! We can be sure that many children will be raped, denied medical care, and worse… just as they are in other prisons run by  CoreCivic...

Governor Carney Signs Executive Order to Improve Reentry Procedures, Reduce Recidivism

Posted by on Dec 6, 2018 in Featured, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

Don’t be distracted! The abuse in Delaware prisons continues unabated, continues because those in control allow it to continue! Guards enter a cell, cuff the inmate, beat him steal or brake his property. They intimidate by threatening to plant drugs in their cells and charge them with “possession of contraband”. Medical care is virtually non existent. How do I know? Two guards who know me call me from their homes and tell me....

‘They’re gonna kill me’: Why did a man die in jail near Fort Worth as untrained guards watched?

Posted by on Dec 2, 2018 in Featured, Prison Abuse, War on Drugs | Comments

This is a story I have heard/seen too many times. Open the whole article; it is so long I have had to edit out much of it. Private prisons are THE worst development in criminal justice! Here we see brutality committed by LaSalle Corrections, a family business that runs the Parker County jail, where 24 out of 77 officers don’t have permanent licenses. If this company is underbidding the two biggest private prison companies, as indicated, you...
