“AT LEAST SOME PEOPLE CARE!”

Hello, and thanks for caring, because in here no staff does! I’m writing back the day I received your letter. I also received one from a G__ W__. Give him my thanks also please. My name is ____ ____. I graduated from Southern High School in Durham, NC, in 2014. I’m 21 years old, and I also have a 2 year old baby girl that I cannot wait to get out to and hold so tight. I must honestly say nothing in here (Durham County Jail) is good or soothing, nothing or no one. I have been in here 65 days now as of today and my jail cell has no cold water. So I’m forced to either drink the hot water or wait hours until the CO finally lets me out to get water from the water hose faucet, but by that time I may be dead of thirst, so I just drink hot water. You also have a lot of relationships going on between the COs. One day a female officer and an inmate got into a confrontation with each other, and the female officer ended up telling her boyfriend, which is a male officer here also, and the next day he ended up stepping to the inmate and they had a confrontation. The shit is just so unprofessional.

Also, a lot of favoritism gets showed beyond these walls. We also get a limited amount of tissue, so I use mine wisely. I could go on and on, page after page, but I’ll save some for the next newsletter. You will hear from me soon. TTYL!!!

Just give me some damn hot water!

I’m just writing to say thanks for your support. I’ve been here 4 years and I’ve watched the drastic changes and impact you and IOA have had on the jail. Where we won’t be heard as inmates, you all at IOA are definitely our voice of reason that won’t be denied. I had to base on officer Coleman punk ass (excuse my language) the other night. So the cell I’ve been put in, the hot water button don’t work (not that if it did any would come out, anyway), so I have to resort to asking the night-time officer to let me out so I can get some hot water out of the janitor/mop closet just to cook my food. So, this particular night, officer Coleman of the 3rd floor was working. We’ve had problems in the past, so I assumed an altercation was inevitable. Continue reading
