Fight Fire with Fire

9/8/16

To my brothers and sisters in the struggle of Durham County Jail and the Durham Justice system, yeah (just us). Yes, it is very real. The New Slavery, mass incarceration is living and gaining more steam as we speak. The only way to dismantle this capitalist machine at 510 S. Mangum St. and new pretty building on 510 Dillard St. (No, not the DPAC. LOL) This County makes its own court docket. So if they want you to sit, you sit here at 510 Mangum St. until you are tried or cop out to an unjust plea bargain. And the condition of the jail (commissary/canteen, GTL phone, medical, food, time out of cell). We must stick together and force them to take all cases to trial, whether it’s a traffic case, misdemeanor, or felony case. This is fighting fire with fire. Stop using the phones and stop making companies like Aramark rich by putting our people’s money in their pocket. And then, only then, something will change for us as whole. If we just sit here and complain and do nothing, they will keep feeding the machine. So if nothing changes, then nothing changes. And that’s real.

 

Be strong and

pray, pray, pray,

-B.R.
