This is more very dangerous BULLSHIT stirred p by tRump, who, by doing so, shows that he has no confidence in our courts or our laws … neither of which he understands.

They are the most horrid, abusive prisons in America …. and that’s saying something! I am depicted here talking on this very point a couple of years ago. Through what I call “legal bribery”, they are a huge impediment to constructive changes in our criminal justice system. They only want more inmates.
