I've seen hours of coverage of Boston etc. reeling from the accumulated snow storms. I have seen only ONE article mentioning the prison population. (attached below) In that article, people interviewed admitted they just didn't care how inmates were doing; they were concerned about the homeless and animals. Dismal, dismal! Interestingly, this story covers a holding facility, where more than half of the population hasn't even been to trial--and are thus not even 'guilty.' I cannot understand the collective attitude toward people in prison. I really cannot understand how anyone could publicly say that 'they deserve what they get' as snow kills people across the country--people with options for getting help. These people Inside are our responsibility. They were not sentenced to freeze to death.
Where's the coverage?
