I pray this message finds you all well and in good health! My brother is currently incarcerated in Oxford Federal Correctional Center doing a 13 year sentence and he recently reach out to me and told me that a friend of his has died in the federal prison due to very high heat climates in the cells! I do not know this young man who died but my heart breaks for him and his family knowing he died at the hands of this federal prison! They are already serving their time they do not need to be treated like animals! That is totally inhumane and it makes me sick to my stomach to hear my brother so down and hurt about that situation! This just happened two days ago! He said they are on lock down due to the recent events and riots that have been going on! He also said that they are in the cells all day long with no sink or toilet so they cannot even drink water because they can’t come out that often. He said not long ago some of the co’s are so bad they left them in there for 5 hours straight and the inmates had to kick the doors and scream just for them to let them out! This is really tearing me up and I cannot imagine getting a call saying that my brother has died in a cell due to some lockdown that has nothing to do with them at all! They can at least keep them where they are able to use the restroom and drink water to stay hydrated! I’m not asking that they give them any royal treatment but treat them like humans! AGAIN! They are already serving their time!! They don’t need to treat them badly they are suffering as it is!! I understand if they didn’t do the crime or if they hadn’t done what they did they wouldn’t be in this situation! They still do not deserve to be treated like this and basically left to die! My brother made some bad decisions in life but he never hurt anyone he is not a bad person just made some bad decisions in life that I’m sure some of us had also made! We are not perfect! I will be contacting the prison today and the next day and the next day until something is done! This is NOT OK!!!!! They cannot just let them die in there like that!!! It’s not ok something NEEDS to be done!!! God Bless! ❤️
