The escaped Alabama inmate and corrections officer who helped him were captured I feel a little bad for the CO. She pissed away her career and freedom and possibly her life over some scumbag who wasn't worth it.
47of74 posted a topic in Quiverful of True CrimeTwo staff members at the prison in Anamosa, Iowa died after being attacked by an inmate. Sad day here in NE Iowa. There are people even up in the Dubuque area that have or are currently working at the prison. It's believed it's the first time an inmate killed a corrections employee since 1969.
Is anyone else watching this gem? I am endlessly fascinated. I'm anxiously awaiting Friday night (or more accurately, Saturday morning, when the episode shows up on my Google Play account :P) WeTV page (with clips and episodes!)
Cleopatra7 posted a topic in Wide World of SnarkYet another example of why the prison industrial complex needs to be dismantled: https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.thedailybeast.com/alabama-sheriffs-filled-their-wallets-by-starving-prisoners ”Alabama law lets sheriffs keep whatever doesn’t get spent on food from their jail food funds. Now 49 of those sheriffs are refusing to disclose how much of that money made it to detainees’ plates, and how much landed in their own pockets.” ... ”While sheriffs’ wallets bulge, Alabama inmates starve, civil rights activists say. “We as an organization receive hundreds of letters a month from people in jails in Alabama,” Littman said. “Sometimes there are concerns about people not having enough to eat, being hungry, and losing weight. Sometimes it’s food that’s not nutritious, particularly for people with various metabolic issues like diabetes. Sometimes it’s frankly just disgusting, like food that’s served still-frozen, or food with insect larvae or animal droppings.”
