I can tell ya where she got it, probably from a family member who is lodged there. Who is being abused by the system every day. Being raped by older men, and guards just sit back and laugh about it. Well stick something up their a** and see how they like it. Then sling them in a room as if nothing happened. And they wonder why they want to be locked down in Solitary, to get away from the perv's. That is not the answer. They are crying out for help, and locking them up like dogs is not the answer. There is Animal cruelty laws why not laws for people. Don't get me wrong there is people in there that shouldn't even be alive to breathe air. But for people who are just in there over a drug charge and fleeing and avaiding officers and sentenced to 8 yrs. They should not be in a prison with rapist and murderers.I've seen men who rape children get 5 yrs, less time and got out to do it again.Where is justice, you tell me.
