True of virtually ALL of America’s prisons: they FAIL to rehabilitate, to help addicts, to keep us safer!  See articles here under “prison abuse” and read what the Nordic countries do. THAT works! Read the article to see how the “tough on crime” bullshit of the past 45 years totally screwed up the system. While we do not necessarily need more people on probation or parole...

Probation and Parole – a short Essay by Ken Abraham – With Letter to the Editor or Editorial Submission

Posted by on Feb 14, 2019 in Backgress - Sessions, Featured, Other Issues, Prison Abuse | Comments

You can google oodles of articles about this, and one thing you won’t find is the reminder that some of the Probation Officers are mean-spirited little people in uniform, who delight in bullying terrified probationers. We have seen it many, many times, to the point that the helpless ex offender admits to things which are not true. A prime example is a P O brow-beating the ex offender, and trying to play psychiatrist, by hinting at...

CORIZON, THE PRISON HEALTHCARE GIANT, STUMBLES AGAIN The company recently lost its contract with Arizona after allegations of serious—and sometimes fatal—medical neglect that have echoes across the country.

Corizon harms more people than it helps! That’s no exaggeration; if you had seen their operations you would know what a disgrace they are to medical professionals. Excerpts from the Article: By the time Walter Jordan began radiation therapy on July 21, 2017, his skin cancer had already eaten through his skull and spread to his brain, according to a doctor who later reviewed the medical files. Jordan, who was incarcerated in a state prison...

Florida DOC Agrees to Reform Prisoner Mental Health Care – And I say “Watch Them!” – kra

And I say “Watch Them”!  Prison officials often enter into such agreements and then routinely ignore them. A judge must monitor the compliance and HAMMER them for infractions! They have NO respect for law. I have SEEN it. READ Culture of Cover Up – Prison Abuse   Looks great on paper, but I am telling you: Watch Them!

Inmates charged in Delaware prison riot claim abuse in lawsuit

Posted by on Feb 9, 2019 in Featured, Prison Abuse | Comments

I know that the complaints voiced here are true. Hell, I have 2 guards who talk to me regularly, but they dare not go public for fear of losing their jobs, or worse. The inmates here are unlikely to get to first base, however, because, in case you don’t know it, judges do not even read the documents filed by inmates without a lawyer. Excerpts from the Article: Nine inmates charged in a Delaware correctional officer’s murder during a...
