I remain in this Miami prison, serving time for a bogus trespassing charge.
My computer time is limited to 15 minutes per session. I wanted to express my thanks for the countless letters of support of prayers. Even the prison staff noted the volume of supportive mail. I am both humbled and strengthened. Thank you!
Using the excuse of COVID-19, all incoming female inmates are put into a punishment isolation cell under the guise of a “quarantine.” They told me it wasn’t for punishment, but it was certainly a punishing and inhumane experience. Apparently, men are not subjected to this treatment.
Another form of arbitrary punishment is moving me, along with other inmates, to new cells with no notice. A guard simply yells my name, and I’m expected to move at any moment. My staff knows that If I stop emailing or calling, it’s because they have moved me or possibly put me back into isolation.
I’ve noticed activity in the prison that makes me fearful for my own safety. However, my spirits are high. I am more determined than ever to keep fighting for you and medical freedom.
