Thank You for this,Mark! Most people do not understand what the prisons are like. Sure some may be ok most are not! Here there is no air or heat and it does get cold in the winter in northern Florida! Most times it is nothing but a revolving door because the only thing to do is sleep or read maybe write a letter ,if you are lucky enough to have someone to write to!Training for the outside is nil and hard to get!They are so crowded they are in large dorms one on top of another not in cells no that would be a luxury that overcrowding does not permit! Health services is a joke they do have to pay for trips to the doctor and medication! Mental Health is nonexistent it is there to write in the file of the inmate of their progress and can be used against them. So they get no help they can trust!This is a terrible situation in this country,and it needs to change!
