SCDC INHUMANE LIVING CONDITIONS!
I am pleading with legislation to assist with the devastating living conditions inmates are facing at Wateree River Correctional Facility. There are no air conditioning units where the inmates are housed. If it is 100 degrees outside the inmates are in 120 degree weather in these housing dorms. Not to mention the humidity. Inmates are not even allowed ice so they can cool off with a cold drink of water. Please remember these men are someone's son, child, fiance, husband, father, or grandfather. Yes, they had made poor mistakes in the past,but they are serving their time. Why is it our loved ones are being treated so unfair. They are not expecting to live as if they are at a resort,but this is unjust treatment. A participant of the world trade center bombing was sent to a facility in Edgefield, S.C. at one point of his incarceration where there was air conditioning. These men are not terrorist,but are being treated worse than a terrorist! Hebrews 13:3 Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. Please help them! It is too hot in this facility. We, the families are pleading for your mercy and any and all assistance in retaining air conditioning at WATEREE RIVER CORRETIONAL FACILITY.
