Mary Garner started this petition to Department of Justice and

I started this petition because everyday I read and hear about the inhumane treatment of those incarcerated. I understand how many people feel about those who break the law but these people are still human beings.

These people have rights to be free from abuse by fellow inmates as well as staff. They have rights to be treated as humans and not animals like many are treated. They have a right to be fed and for their food to not be contaminated. They have a right to have visitors, phone calls, emails, letters, tablets, and anything else that has already been approved.They have a right to file grievances without being retaliated against or punished. They have a right to have someone check upon them without punishment.

The DOJ needs to step up and pay closer attention to what goes on in these places. They need to put a STOP to gang activity, bullying, drugs,weapons being brought into the facilities, and abuse by fellow inmates as well as staff. The DOJ should be made to go in these places 4 or more times a year, more often if there are things going on that shouldn't be. The DOJ should have to write up a report each and every time that they do a visit and with proof of said visit on date provided.

HELP STOP IT
