This article was sent to me by great Delaware attorney Steve Hampton (Grady and Hampton), one of few with the fortitude, brains, and courage required to sue Delaware prison officials and their “health care” providers, and he is excellent at holding them accountable and winning lawsuits.  When folks may think that advocates like Steve or myself are exaggerating, realize that here we see a federal judge using words like...

LOCKED UP AND LEFT TO DIE In Texas, dying in jail is “par for the course.”

Posted by on Nov 4, 2021 in Featured, Mental Illness, Prison Abuse |

This is another excellent article too long for me to edit as I post it … with all my other work I don’t have the time. I did read it, and the horrors it reports in Texas also occur in many other state’s prisons! I have read before about some of these cases, and posted articles.  I just don’t have time to cross reference it all. The Whole Article: Armando Carrillo had been waiting outside the Nueces County Jail for hours...

This quote hits the nail on the head.  Companies like the GEO Group are such a disaster that they have inspired the fast growing “No more private prisons” movement. “This multi-billion-dollar corporation illegally exploited the people it detains to line its own pockets,” Ferguson said. By the way, the Chairman of the GEO Group makes more than 5 million $$$$$$ a year!  See...

If I had $5 for every article like this one which I have seen, I’d be wealthy.  As I have said: “America has the best health care in the world … and the worst! The best can be found in hospitals across the nation, and the worst is in prisons and jails across the nation!”  However, the whole country is deficient in MH care, and in prisons, there is no such thing. I have SEEN what we call mental health care in prison. The local...

The Color of Justice: Racial and Ethnic Disparity in State Prisons – lack Americans are incarcerated in state prisons across the country at nearly five times the rate of whites, and Latinx people are 1.3 times as likely to be incarcerated than non-Latinx whites

Sure not news to me, but it may be news to some of you. Racism, subtle, subconscious, and overt, permeates our criminal justice system. Excerpts from the Article: When former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin killed George Floyd by kneeling on his neck in 2020, the world witnessed the most racist elements of the U.S. criminal legal system on broad display. The uprisings that followed Floyd’s death articulated a vision for transforming...

How Delaware shielded Connections from scrutiny for years

Posted by on Oct 16, 2021 in Featured, Other Issues, Prison Abuse |

My good friend and great attorney, Steve Hampton, called this article to my attention. Connections has been a disaster for Delaware. We must demand more transparency and accountability! Excerpts from the Article: Despite years of lawsuits and agreeing to pay more than $15 million to settle charges that it improperly billed federal programs and lacked proper recordkeeping for narcotics, Connections Community Support Programs was continuously...
