      Very sad and true. I am a mother too with a son in Federal Prison. This man your son will be home to you and so will mine. Believe that and it will be. God bless all these men in prison and their families. As of today, 2066 inmates have Covid, or are listed to have it and 359 staff in the Federal system. 45 inmates have died and 0 staff. why so many inmates?
      They must not be getting the care they need, No control over their own destiny. Someone has to pay for this injustice.

      I need to ask… what more is it that people want the prisons to do for people? 100% isolation from other prisoners is not possible; certain things like food services and laundry need to happen, as do janitorial services…. and staff cannot do all of these services and maintain the safety and security of the entire prison (considering how understaffed most prisons truly are). Also, almost no prisons (save super-maxes) are set up to isolate prisoners from one another in a way that could 100% prevent the spread of anything like covid-19. Even if that were possible, it would require the suspension of privileges and services that a lot of these ‘insiders’ seem to be complaining about.

      Unless you propose building new facilities with 100% isolation capabilities that won’t be finished until this pandemic is over anyway, there literally is no solution. Advocating for the release of prisoners is a non-starter; the needs for restorative justice and the rights of the victims are to be considered, too. The convicted still need to serve their legally mandated sentences, and anything less than incarceration is an affront to American justice and the rights of the victims to see justice done.

      There is literally nothing anyone can do here and it doesn’t further the cause of abolishing the registry to hear people whining about a situation that they got themselves into before a pandemic began.

      Per capita (as in, adjusted for population), is the number of prisoners infected or dead from Covid higher or lower, percentage-wise, than that of the general population? 2 million prisoners vs 350+ million Americans. GO!

      Sanctioned Murder! That’s all this is. It isn’t over yet either. Once this Virus kills off as many people inside the Prisons as it can, it will break out back to all communities again…MUTATED! Remember, POLITICIANS WANTED THIS!
