If inmates grew food on prison grounds, it would most importantly improve their health by improving nutrition as well as reduce idleness and offer them a sense of self worth! It’s a win win. @FL_Corrections

I looked at my prison food tray today & just pushed it away. Rat droppings in the styrofoam tray & the food mixed together. I don't expect restaurant quality food, just something decent and without shit added, literally. Let us grow our food with all this land around the prison.

Add in the humanity factor. Life in prison is extremely inhumane especially considering the inadequate health care, nutrition, mental health and living conditions. #drop LWOP

A mandatory life without parole sentence may make some of us feel good, but it signs taxpayers up to pay for a person's food, clothing, housing, aging, and healthcare until they die--even if the person is rehabilitated, no longer a danger, and costs millions to imprison.

Would like to see things like this change, but like Criminal Justice reform, no one seems to care. Justice for all means justice for all.

My LO was stabbed while “working” in an area he wasn’t assigned to (he was pulled to work there). While in protective confinement, his JP6 tablet went “missing.” His grievance was denied as it wasn’t within the 20-day window, a window he spent healing from multiple stab wounds.

As we prepare to go into legislative session let’s spend a few minutes talking about what’s going on in the Florida DoC and how the state is managing the collapse of the department. Currently almost 70% of our state run correction facilities are in emergency staffing.

Amend the egregious sentencing guidelines for Florida’s Prison Releasee Reoffender law. We ask for appropriate sentencing for all. @FLSenate @FLHouseofReps @GovRonDeSantis @FloridaPRRFU

Florida’s Prison Releasee Reoffender law cast a wide net. They are not all repeat “violent” offenders. Many caught in the PRR net are drug addicts. Treat the addicts and mentally ill. @FloridaPRRFU @GovRonDeSantis @FloridaChiefs @FLSheriffs @FLSenate @FLHouseofReps

Many times the 1 year and 1 day sentence is imposed as the result of a plea deal to get out of county jail. Many of these offenders are addicts who, at that point, need help. Appropriate mental health care and drug rehabilitation, at that point, could prevent future offenses!

Ep. 35 w/State Attorney Campbell explains that inmates sentenced to PRR aren't first-time, low-level offenders. It's built to address habitual offenders who repeatedly commit violent and serious crimes Learn why PRR is a key factor to FL's low crime rate:

We can not sit back silent any longer and we will not be bullied by the Florida Sheriff’s Association and the Florida Prosecuting Attorneys. PRR is wrong and should be amended to more proportional sentences.

Many individuals sentenced under Florida’s #PRR were under 25 when they committed their offenses, and some whose prior prison sentence was as a juvenile. This is a wonderful project!

If she had taken the 10-yr plea, she may have been out by now. Perhaps 10 yrs was enough for her to change? Perhaps that is something the FSA should ask her. Do they know her, or any of the other PRR’s? When did the FSA become the authority on who is & isn’t capable of change?
