  • Here's a fact from a personal experience. No hearsay, no heard it from a friend, I saw this downhill spiral in person. Tigger warning, this involves drug use, and abuse. If you're sensitive to this type of thing, I'm giving you fair warning now. My adopted sister's bio father was in jail, she was my best friend, and we originally had only a power of attorney because it was thr assumption she would return to her dad once his jail time was over. Now, her dad was by no means a good man. He abused all his ex's, mentally and psychologically abused my sister, and was a heavy drug user. For once he didn't actually commit the crime, he was framed, I won't go into it because thats a whole different story, but his sentence was lowered, and he spent the rest of it at a halfway house. We would visit him, play games, take pictures, and for once, he looked amazing. He had muscle, his face was filled out, his hair wasn't gray, and had grown back. He looked better. He had a great plan for what he was going to do when he got out, and it all was promising, until it wasn't. No place would hire him, no apartment would lease him, he couldn't drive, didn't have money, and had no where to go. So he did the only thing he could do, go back to the people who were a bad influence on him. He spiraled fast, drugs, got back with an ex, stealing, and ended up right back in prison. For a lot longer, and an offense that was 100% his fault. Again, a whole different can of worms to open with that story. It was tragic, and it made me see how we treat past criminals in a whole new way. He wasn't a good person, by any stretch, but to see him try to be only for him to be set up for failure. It broke my heart, and it broke my sisters heart because she was his biggest advocate, always had been, no matter how many times he broke her heart. That was the last straw for her honestly. These videos always hit me harder because I've seen first hand how that system works, and how it treats criminals. You can go on, and on saying "if they didn't commit the crime", but most the time. The system sets them up for complete failure.

  • The use of solitary confinement is horrifying enough normally, but putting someone there for no actual reason - especially if they’re positive for a virus that’s goddamn killing people - makes me want to vomit, and do it over everyone responsible. These are human fucking beings, not numbers, not cash cows. I’ve been having a hard time trying to find out how to donate books to local jails - now I see why! Even so, solitary would be even a hair’s width easier to deal with if you had a distraction like that.

  • Same deal in homeless shelters. Every soap dispenser dry as a bone, you get literally one drop of detergent for laundry a week. Only funding that shelters get are for food. You could be in a violent filthy unregulated shelter, but eating delicious/healthy hot breakfasts & dinners, + for lunch Trader Joe's drops off snacks and their 10 dollar pre made salads on their "export date" (they were fresh and quality) Look out for homeless shelter advocates and directors who are extremely obese women. All they do jobwise is secure more food donations or volunteer chefs. They eat like absolute kings alongside the homeless, who can't wash or clean or avoid catching sh It like MERSA. Fat homeless shelter directors refuse to make any quality changes not related to eating. It's impossible to starve in America if you don't have dignity or pride to protect. But "feed the homeless really wel in perpetuity" persists over "rehab and rehome the homeless". Homeless are just a bargaining chip for fat people 'advocating' for there to always be really high quality, and get praised endlessly for doing so. Always taking a plate of the typically expensive meals every day they "work" at an otherwise filthy and irreputable shelter

Mother nature or a higher power or God has had enough. Floods famine plages earthquakes and it's not enough . the population of the world keeps going up . Having six kids when u can't afford to take care of 1 . If u do the crime u bo the time but now a days it costs to much money to keep people in jail so less time for more crimes . One of showes I like the perge. Give me a hunting licence And I and others will thin out the heard . U say I discuss u but u are hurting the world bringing down iq and promoting a lazy anti work ethick. What u can't under stand is u work pay bills work harder and get ahead . U may fall on your face a few times u pick your self up and go back to work. There is no free lunch unless it is someone else's and that is wrong . Taking money out of school lunch programs and programs to help the working poor and putting it in to prisons and drug rehabilitation programs is sick like u .

From China in the mail one neighbor bought and sold enouf to buy a house in a beter neighborhood . In 2 years to get his new house it cost 9 lives .

  • The fact that people are surprised that American jails are privatized is as alarming as people not knowing that companies pay political figures to play favoritism with laws and regulations on their behalf regardless of party lines. To say fuck this president seems to be a little underwhelming these days to because he made the swamp that existed cooler and bigger than the slogan he branded. It's like saying I'm tired of these racoons going through my trash and buying racoons to guard the garbage knowing they going to trash it anyway.

  • I would bet trump (and others with money, power and connections within Russia and/or China) is taking Arbidol, a reportedly highly effective antiviral medication (which reportedly has minimal, if any, side effects.) This medication is widely available and very inexpensive in Russia as an OTC. If trump is taking Arbitol, it would explain his not wearing a mask and his apparent lack of concern that he (the ONLY person he truly cares about) could potentially be exposed to or get COVID-19. Arbidol (being used in Russia and China for prevention and initial treatment of Covid-19, as well as other viruses) could also explain why those two countries have had a significantly lower death rate during this pandemic. If what I have read about Arbidol in various medical reports is correct, this would indicate, among other things, that the Russian and Chinese governments care more about the health and well-being of their citizens than the USA does (and that we have been 'brainwashed' into believing the exact opposite.)

  • I just recently found out about John Oliver's segments and started binge watching them. Prior to this I have liked and favorited every episode. Unlike some people I will not dislike it, but at the same time I can not give it a like simply because, while your heart is in the right place and I agree almost entirely with a lot of your words, I feel that you simply failed to look into what the end results of your suggestion would truly be. There are some pretty big issues that you either never thought about or even worse deliberately avoided bringing up since they wreck your case. My biggest issues with this segment are two fold. First, is the issue of nastier or vengeful inmates who will go out of their way to try to deliberately infect people if released and with no prior procedure for detecting which person falls into such a category besides the obvious inmates who are in prison precisely because they deliberately infected people with aids or similar deadly diseases. How exactly would we go about proving that petty thief A is mentally planning to infect people while convicted killer A actually is safe to release and only plans on hunkering down until it is all clear? And how exactly would you go about proving that these outbound persons will not carry the virus with them out of the correctional system and into the country outside? If we dedicate a greater percentage of the testing then that means that other areas of vital testing are being short changed as a result. And how exactly do you keep these potential outbound individuals quarantined from the rest of the population and even each other while wait for the results to return? But this risk while real is probably a small percentage issue and so it pales to my second issue. Second, is the issue of the fact that what you are suggesting is a serious breach of quarantine in a situation where you already know the virus exists. Yes, we have established that the quarantine has already partially failed due to workers, and the release of jail confined people. But you yourself mentioned that this is bad, and yet you are advocating more of that. Where exactly would these prisoners go if they were released? For prisoners with family they would be released to them, and thereby potentially infecting the very people they would least want to infect. For everyone else where would they go? Likely to the cheapest housing facilities, where I promise you with a 100% guarantee you would then see an instant spike of covid outbreaks through the populations of inner city housing areas. You mention in your reports that the victims of this outbreak have a higher than average count when it comes to certain minorities and I am sadly not at all surprised to hear that even though it is yet another tragic example of how badly our society is set apart. But guess what, that percentage of minorities infected would only go up if the prisons all did what you are advocating here and for the very reasons I just pointed out. I am not saying that these prisoners deserve to die in a cruel and inhumane way for any crime, not even the small percentage of inmates who are in prison for deliberately infecting people with aids should be faced with this situation since they should have been in our care and safe from this nightmare scenario. Frankly this entire situation is absolutely horrible, and you are absolutely right that leaving them in a situation where they are highly likely to contract the virus is a tragedy that should never have been allowed to happen in the first place. What I am saying however is that the things you are advocating sounds great but have not been properly thought through. You are potentially committing a worse tragedy just to try to combat a tragedy that others have already created. By all means blame Trump and the rest of the system for allowing things to get to this point in the first place. But in an epidemic outbreak society needs to understand that sometimes tough decisions need to be made. Just like the overwhelmed hospital staff need to decide who to treat when their resources are not there, and I really hate what I am about to say and it is killing something inside me that I even say it, so too do we as a society need to decide whether the risk of releasing potentially infectious people into the greater population is better than simply leaving people locked up where at least the contagion is finite. And yes I realize that saying this is dooming people to die when they could have been saved. But we are seriously in a no win situation at this point and I would rather have the knowledge that I doomed a prison population to extinction, (although I truly hope they are able to still somehow contain the outbreaks internally) than that I doomed entire cities in the multiple by letting them out. When it comes down to it better to damn your soul leaving a few hundred thousand to die in one relatively closed system than to release that population and watch as it splinters to dozens of different locations and infects all of them instead and as a result killing millions more. The correctional institution should have done far more and far faster to prevent such a situation in the first place. But once they were known to be heavily infected it was too late. At that point it would be safer for the country as a whole to just write off everyone in those facilities rather than trying to save the remaining population and dooming everyone else. In the worst case scenario you will know a maximum number of people who will die from that part of the outbreak, and maybe we will even get lucky and somehow by a miracle the safety procedures will stop the spread that they already failed to avoid in the first place. Do I feel like a monster for even saying this? Yes, yes I do. No one will point their hatred at my words more than I do right now. But I feel like when it comes to a colony's survival that deliberately taking in known risk of infectious cases is dooming that colony. And make no mistake, at this point we are talking colony survival when it comes to our country as a whole. When this is all over and we have the ability to take liability into account then by all means those who are responsible for this situation in the first place should be taken to task for causing such situations in the first place. Why was there not a better quarantine of the prison systems in the first place? Why were the workers not put under harsher scrutiny for health during a known outbreak? Why did they continue to transfer prisoners between facilities after an outbreak was known to be occurring? Why were there not new temporary facilities made to handle new prisoners rather than sticking potentially healthy individuals in with potentially infected ones and vice versa?

  • About 5 years ago I decided watching tv was the most futile intellectual exercise I could do and I removed every service related to it. Last week tonight is one of those very few things I still watch (when it is made public in youtube). It is amazing journalism with a façade of comedy which gets to people (or at least I hope people really understands what John is saying). My brother was incarcerated a while back because a thief took his wallet and a few days later dropped the empty wallet (with his photo ID) in a bank robbery. The police came by and said they found his fingerprints at the bank (on his wallet) and sent him to jail awaiting review of the case. He was later on released and a retraction was put on his file but I can imagine this happening all throughout the States and thinking all of these men/women sent to these facilities. Most of this people wont have a stable source of income for the rest of their lives and now they might be physically debilitated as covid can leave you with long lasting effects. Is this the world we want?

A lot of the things people pointed to as evidence they were lying actually had totally reasonable explanations, some of the stuff was just made up and not true. And when I watch the footage of the balloon flying off, it does not seem staged. The guy actually seems like a total asshole, because he yells and swears at his kids and his wife that the balloon isn't properly tethered before being told by one of his kids that his other son has crawled inside before the balloon took off - the guy doesn't believe it at all and continues acting like a jerk while yelling out for his son to come out until he starts to get worried when he can't find his son. If he did try and stage this for publicity, I highly doubt he would have been swearing at his wife and kids while yelling about his balloon flying away.
