As one with a checkered past, unfortunately, I can say first-hand that the story about prison units with no air conditioning is right on the money.

But because it is prison — unless it affects yourself or one of your loved ones — nobody has been in a hurry to address these borderline inhumane conditions in decades. Thank you for daring to print the truth, even if it probably won’t make a difference.
