A post on TomCat's blog. Two items this week which seem to call for the intervention of the Greek Furies.

Extremely worthy candidates for the furies JD! Both have authority viewing human rights and respect for others as expendable.

Several years ago, while I was doing cafeteria duty, a similar incident stands out for me. A student was given a notice that he didn't have any $$ for lunch, so..he received an inch thick peanut butter sandwich, w/no drink. I found it callous that they do this, so I bought him lunch for the rest of the week, until his dad could get the money in his account. From that moment on, I was on the look out for the kids who did not have any food for lunch, and helped them out. A stamp on the arm is worse, imho, and shouldn't be done. You can bet the principal was in on it too. ugh!

I don't keep my dog and cat outside on hot days. They are with me in air-conditioned comfort. Animals vs. people in prisons. Angola needs to be razed, and Joe A., needs to be fired, imho. This is appalling, all prisons should have AC. Better yet, if they don't, take out the AC in the Wardens/correctional officers/judges chambers and offices, because you know....that would save $$. Unbelievable cruelty, that still goes on

Unleash the Furies, and set them free!

Thanks, Joanne for post.

And the lack of AC can be deadly for those with mental health issues taking psychotropic medications--that led to deaths in CA's desert prisons and the Madrid federal court decision beginning court oversight on health care that was mental health care.

I've always wanted to actually SEE the Furies in action….could we possibly set them onto Trump? (AFTER they've taken care of these requests, of course.)

Alabama: Better get Megaera over there before the district starts to get more 'creative' and starts adding a skull to the stamp in stead of a smiley (as if that would make it any less nasty) or start stamping it on their foreheads in stead of the kid's arms. I always wonder what kind of education children get in schools where they shame children by having them walk around with a stamp all day to catch the attention of their parents. Certainly no education by good example.

Louisiana: I can just hear the the state thinking: "Why throw good money away on people on death row to keep them cool? With a bit of luck they'll be in a much cooler place soon anyway. No, let's really it on our friends for attorney and contractor fees instead. They deserve it." The only good thing in this is Judge Brian Jackson's remark, who dared to openly question Louisiana's integrity. With the worst incarceration record in America, and with America's known race/minority/income bias in who end up behind bars, Judge Jackson asked a rhetorical question of course, but it's commendable he asked it at all. Now it's up to Magaera and her sisters to make sure Louisiana forks out the money for the air conditioning in Angola prison. But they better stick around for a while afterwards, because with a $600 million deficit, the state will soon come up with a cut to some other budget for the poor and underprivileged very soon.
