Dear Mr. W_______,
Thanks for the letter and n4. It came at a much needed time. I’m glad to hear there are concerned citizens who care about how the jail system is mis-run and mis-managed! It more often than not sends people worse off back into neighborhoods angry, hurt, and totally demoralized and at times animalistic! Its truly a system designed to oppress and exploit the lesser, poorer persons in society, 1. high bonds, 2. wrong search and seizures at homes (my house was trashed and 1100 dollars stolen), 3. very poor sleeping quarters (my dogs have better), 4. slop for food, 5. the cells are freezing while we get little clothing and blankets 5. husbands/wives should at least be allowed to visit if incarcerated at the same time (I fit that category, the family is the fabric of society), 6. they arrested us quickly and put us in cages, yet the legal process once here is slow and tedious, even the process of bond reduction takes weeks all the while people lose good jobs and families are damaged sometimes beyond repair. The jail system is a business of making money, not reform and helping most who may have made a bad choice or mistake become a better citizen, neighbor, co-worker, or friend (cuz that’s what 99% of us are!). I’m very glad to hear that our neighbors are getting educated and involved, cuz believe it or not…this could happen to any of us! And unless you have access to 10-50k your whole life could change forever and your family’s also. The phone situation is laughable, the grievance officers are simply yes people, as I’ve made several complaints and requests with zero results or even responses back. I thought in our legal system you’re innocent until proven guilty. Well that doesn’t appear to be the cause here. All and all its hard to believe this is happening in the United States of America.
