Did you know that: > a thousand inmates have been stuck in freezing cells at a federal jail in Brooklyn that has had limited power/heat for at least a week, according to public defenders/leaders of the corrections officer union.

That is complete bullshit. Being detained does not mean you can be held in inhumane conditions due to neglect by the facility staff.

In humane conditions are unacceptable. In addition, 95% of them will return to society. Would you rather see them punished or reformed?

Sub freezing temperatures have drawn protesters. The jail won’t even accept donated blankets. Those in charge not communicating with press or protesters or they respond with lies that “all is well”.

Are you aware that prison is meant to be a punishment not a sleep away camp?

Many have not had a trial and are presumed innocent.
