from a prisoner in the USA... 3 Weeks, 2 Days ago  
"If the prison officers thought you were showing symptoms they would take you out, give you a face mask, and then put you back on the block. We were all thinking we were going to die. Protests started around the jail. A line of cars encircled the whole jail demanding our release. 70% of us are in here because we can't afford bail. They did release some. We all packed our bags praying we'd be the next one, but for most the call never came. Then the dying started for real. Seven of us died in quick succession, and even the guard on our cell block died.

By early April over 500 detainees had tested positive and over 250 guards. I only ever saw one person tested, but almost everyone they tested was positive. No one wanted to be tested because if you came up positive they would drag you to a horrible building and stick you in a huge dormitory with all the other infected people.

They tried to social distance us by converting the whole jail to single-man cells, but they needed more cells to do that. Instead of releasing more people they opened all the buildings they'd shut down years before due to age and dilapidation.

I was moved to one of those buildings. I was horrible. Nothing worked. Toilets and taps were all broken.

Our cells were all flooded for weeks - my bunk was an island. There was no heat. I could not sleep as I was so cold even wearing every piece of clothing I owned. They gave us an extra blanket but everything was damp. The water was the colour of mud in the sinks since all the pipes had rusted due to disuse."

UK prisons have responded by basically locking everyone up 23 hours a day for a year; suspending their human rights, dignity and the consolations of company. This is probably the best approach to prepare prisoners for release back into society currently...

If only they would try as hard to stamp out stupidity as they do for covid we would all be better off.

Nothing against stupid people of course, but there is no need to put them in charge of things, or let them be police.

It's not genuine. Waiting to be hanged in the electric chair. Your loving son. Yeah, right.

Be good to stick on the inside of a card next Mother's Day though...
