State senator brokers donation of masks to Department of Correction – “Good on Him!” – kra

Posted by on Jun 26, 2020 in Featured, Other Issues |

 State Sen. Darius Brown recognizes that inmates must be treated humanely.  Prison is the worst place to get ill, for the “health care” is notoriously abominable.  God Bless Sen. Brown and the many organizations involved. This measure will save lives, and more states should do it. Using them for in person visits is smart.

This is NO stretch: She will be a super comfort IF you get locked up!
