Ken’s Comments:   If you don’t know that you can believe nothing said by prison officials, then you don’t know what goes on in our prisons! READ Culture of  Cover Up   I have seen solitary destroy many adult men; it is especially harsh for children.

Ken’s Comments:   This is typical of the FALSE information prison officials spout to justify their crimes: “Corrections officials cited the group’s history and said those who gathered outside Martin were attempting to “incite a riot” and calling for those inside the prison to burn it down.” Absurd!

Ken’s Comments:   This rather lengthy article is in the form of an interview of Alisa Roth, about her new book, “Insane: America’s Criminal Treatment of Mental Illness”. It is excellent. As many of you know, the neglect of the mentally ill in America is an absolute disgrace and costs us about $444 BILLION dollars every year! See related articles on this website. During my five years in prison I SAW that mental health treatment...
