Mississippi Prison System on Trial

Reports of prisoners being abused and neglected are emerging from the state prison system of Mississippi. Prisoners using cellphones to take pictures of broken toilets, pests in the food, and overcrowded conditions are reportedly being given extended sentences with up to 12 years added on. Activists say that racially biased anti-crime bills have led to overcrowding and underfunding of the prisons resulting in horrific conditions. Mississippi is currently experiencing a high number of prisoner deaths due to murder and suicides. It is important for citizens across the country to defend the human and civil rights that we have come to expect in the United States. Vote for candidates who respect human rights and civil rights for everyone.
