AZDOC has NOT told their pregnant inmates about the ‘Dignity for Incarcerated Women Act’

Families of pregnant women have told us that there has been no postings or any dissemination of information about the Act. These expectant mothers need to know they will no longer be shackled or restrained in any way. And after birth, they will be allowed to bond with their babies for 72 hours. We wonder why the DOC is hiding this information from them…..

Judge Silver to AZDOC: “See you in court!”

Judge Silver to AZDOC: “See you in court!”

Federal Judge Roslyn Silver has finally lost patience with the DOC. She’s taking them to trial over their continued non-compliance with Parson v. Ryan, a class action suit started in 2012.

If the DOC can’t defend their decision to turn over the health care of inmates to a for-profit contractor, they will be in receivership, and that will end substandard health care for inmates.

Judge Silver says it best, “The state’s failures have led to preventable deaths, suicides, and untold suffering by inmates unable to obtain medical treatment. The dead are not advantaged by repeated promises of better behavior in the future, nor are they able to gain from monetary rewards. It is impossible to quantify the harm suffered by prisoners because of inadequate health care.”

10 Ambulances in 24 Hours at Peaville!

10 Ambulances in 24 Hours at Peaville!

We’ve had multiple reports from families and staff, about the brutal heat emergencies in the women’s prison. A staff member at Lumley Unit said three 911 calls were issued in two hours!

A woman allegedly broke her ankle on one of the yards, trying to fix swamp coolers. She couldn’t get down the ladder again, so two fire trucks were called to perform an emergency extraction. Answering the call on that emergency was a 26-year-old guard. After helping with that ordeal, he staggered back to his post and collapsed.

The 3d ambulance was for a young lady on A-yard that went to the hospital.

Remember readers, only three units in Perryville have air conditioning, all the rest have ‘swamp coolers’ which are not designed to work over 104 degrees or humid (monsoon) conditions.

Cruel and unusual punishment indeed!

    I was in prison for 17years and have seen so many people die in front of me It’s traumatic and I have PTSD from it. Medical never helped me for my heart problems, never took tests, just told me I have congested heart failure and didn’t do anything for me. I saw it every day. They never helped us, made us always feel like we were lying and would send us away. Making people work in the kitchen who have scoliosis, heart problems, people who have AIDS and Hep C as well as other STDs. There’s rat poop on our kitchen food, birds all over our trays that we eat off of making us all even sicker, black mold everywhere. We can’t breathe in our cells due to all the mold and crud in our walls, vents, and coolers. They are trying to kill us – they don’t care and the money they get for us does not go to us. There is so much more.

    I’ve been sexually attacked by the CO police officers twice. I have my whole life to account for in there and I’m surprised I made it out after 17years. They have medium inmates on max yards getting assaulted and they don’t care. They say it is due to no room. They also send you to max yard as punishment without ever getting tickets. It’s all retaliation. They will ruin your life if you don’t do what they want. They make up lies, yep the sergeants, if you refuse to work because you don’t feel good. I heard a Sergeant say “Oh you’re going to hurt yourself” then cuff her up and put her in isolation when the girl never said it. I’ve seen it all, believe that.
