Update to: The “Unempowerable” Prisoner

I wrote the blog post entitled, The “Unempowerable” Prisoner on Saturday morning at 2 a.m. At approximately 8:30 p.m. of the same evening, the woman who was involved in the incident that I described in the post, who had been in segregation, was rushed to the hospital and we were locked down. We did not know what had happened, but by the frantic response of staff, we knew that it was serious. The woman returned the next day but has been isolated ever since. All that we know is, while she is safe,  she remains in segregation, this time on suicide watch.

Below is a beautiful picture she drew, and gave to me.

    Thank you for these deeply insightful postings. As difficult as these days are, your insights are amazing and should give some small measure of comfort that you are getting the word out and that it is being read.
