This is to cheeseburger. Granted u right our grandparents did. Although I believe u need to think that out. Ask yourself did they have a choice. And I dare u to stay direct in The heat for 30 min to 1 hr and then reply do 30 in direct sun. And 30 in a tin building. Hollaholla. Just a word of thought not meant to upset u. God bless
Wow are you for real

Here's another word for thought. If the people in prison had not committed crimes, they would not be in the heat. As taxpayors we do not owe them a comfortable place to settle down in now or ever.
They need to obey the laws like others do. Then they have a say as to how hot it is.

But as fellow human beings, do we not owe it to the men and women that break laws to make living conditions reasonable. 10 inmates dying from the heat cannot be reasoble in any sense. The prison system provides heat for the winter, why not air conditioning for the summer?

.

If we allow offenders to die in prison then we are guilty of murder. Do you want God to judge you for that?

We are supposed to treat prisons as war solders. Tht isn't happening. Even people who are arrested are being abused, in Az too.
