I agree. I think that it was a poor decision to transfer all those prisoners to those prisons in Virginia. Wallens Ridge, Red Onion and the others are notorious for all kinds of abuses.
The families and loved ones need to mobilize their forces and push the government to bring them back home.
In the meantime, you can send a shout out to your loved ones every Monday night from 7pm on Holler to the Hood radio program. WMMT - it broadcasts out of western Kentucky.

They are prisoners, they have no rights and who gives a sh!t about them.

They are also humans and, as such, they have HUMAN rights. Society has a responsibility to honor those rights - no matter the reasons that got them into prison in the first place.

There is always a reason why people end up in places they should not be. but who is we to judge, there is a lot of those prisoners that was tranfered to wallens ridge from the virgin islands that should not have gone there.

princess the vigin islands government have to pay so much money for these prisoners to stay housed where there at and they always saying the government don't have no money so i do believe in no time they will be back home,maybe not now but pretty soon. they say the jail in st.croix was to go under repair but i don't know if they started.
