I have witnessed first hand the abuse of family members (including children) by the prison guards. Every member of our legislator should be required to see for themselves.

This machine is ridiculous, it has been reported to have a high rate of false positive results. I've been in the lobby waiting to visit and I have seen elderly people having to sign a consent to a pat down because the test showed they were positive for something. People are not going to want to visit because the process takes so long now. Between visiting appts. and the drug testing, it takes so long to get processed and visits are shorter even with an appointment!

Today I went to visit my bf along with my 10 yr old daughter. I was randomly chosen to ion screening test with a positive for rubinol? I washed my hands and again was tested and again positive. I have never even heard of that supposed pain killer the C.O explained to me. I do not use any drugs not even a prescription and than was required to voluntarily strip search. Aside from the strip search being negative for contraband. Everytime I come to visit. I have to be wanded because of a injury with metal plates so I when could I even bring in contraband. This system is horrible and unreliable and very embarrassing.

I am signing because I am a wife of an inmate where this type of screening takes place, and it is being abused and as a figure of power by the co's....

It's pretty bad when they're stripping a 77 yr old woman -- perverts & seriously sick abuse of power human beings.

I'm signing because I got in a situation in February of 2014 and was asked to be strip searched and first refused because I was on my ministration and there was no reason to search me they told me that they would call the sheriff and get a warrant to search me I told them that I would rather leave the premises eventually I ended up signing the paper to get searched..because I truly need it to see my son my only child who's been wrongfully convicted of a murder he did not do..they took me in a bathroom and beat the hell out of me and charge me with battery on two officers and now I can't visit my son.....someone please do something GOD BLESS...D.MITCHELL..AP2628
