A Prison That Shows Men Dignity in Life and in Death ?
I was shocked to read this. My friend thought it would help inmates if we activists push other prisons to follow Warden Cain's example.
Me, I'm a little skeptical.
If everything I read in the article is true, I have to hear it from the inmates themselves. Prison wardens are virtually farmers. They herd people like ranchers herd cattle. I have seen many inmates get abused at the behest of prison security personnel and sometimes the top brass. I know the wardens and those closest to them are never officially made aware of these occurrences. Medical personnel sometimes minimize the extent of the injuries suffered upon abused inmates.
I'm not saying all prisons operate this way, But I've seen many that do.
So, I ask all of you who are in Angola to speak now or forever hold your peace.
If any of you know someone who is in Angola have them write me at the following address:
1099 F Beltline Rd
Collinsville, IL 62234
Lets find out if we are getting snow jobbed again by the media and those who control it. If I am wrong, we really have found a place where others can learn to be better prison overseers.
We can't lose!
