First Digest Post of Summer – June 2nd

By BitcoDavid

I promised Moorbey I’d reblog this petition, so here it belatedly is.

Reblogged from Moorbey’z Blog:

Dear Friends and Supporters:

One month ago I made a request for compassionate release which was honored by the warden at Carswell Federal Medical Center. Today the papers are still on a desk in Washington, D.C. even though the terminal cancer that I have contracted requires expeditious action.

Although I requested immediate action by the Bureau of Prisons, I find it necessary to again request immediate action from you, my friends, comrades and supporters to call the three numbers listed below on Thursday, May 30 and request action on my behalf.

This could result in my being able to access medical treatment at Sloan Kettering so that I can face the rest of my life with dignity surrounded by those I love and who love me.

Please do this.

Yours truly

Lynne Stewart  FMS CARSWELL-53504-054

The term Rat takes on a whole new meaning thanks to prison privatization. Huffpo reports that a private prison company is on the hotseat – and it’s not CCA (for a change). Apparently, in a private prison in Mississippi, the inmates are selling rats as pets. The name of the company is Management & Training Corporation, based in Utah. This particular institution, the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, houses primarily mentally ill inmates, and is being sued by the ACLU. Here’s the link from Huffpo.
