7.5 hours spent inside Solitary confinement this weekend. No food, water, bathroom, nothing and just in the fragment I expierenced as a “prisoner” I learned so much as to how to truely be human and be invisible in a sea of people. Just as prisoners are among bars. ⛓ 
Special thanks to @albertcollado__ and @thehive as well @gil.riv for documenting and photographing the entire experience.

“If you disobey the rules of society, they send you to prison; if you disobey the rules of the prison, they send you to US. Alcatraz is not like any other prison in the United States. Here, every inmate is confined alone... to an individual cell.” “Some men are destined never to leave Alcatraz... alive.” The spirits live on

Doing what I do on the House floor.
:
No new prisons without approval. The Department of Corrections budget is ballooning and accountability is lacking.
:
While I agree with much of the new approach to incarceration and rehabilitation put forward by Gov. Polis’ new administration, I refuse to reward DOC by approving a budget request pushed through last fall when they thought we were sleeping.
:
To this end, I joined my colleagues in passing an amendment stripping the Colorado Department of Corrections of funding to start re-opening CSP II, a state prison in Canon City. We don't need more prison beds; we need #reform. Any effort to reopen prisons must go through the General Assembly and include a true commitment to treatment, job placement and successful #reentry.

「 米国の囚人さんの眼鏡、メガネ 」

刑務所内で凶器として使われないようにナイロン製で軽く、脱獄の道具として使われないようにフレーム内に芯を入れておらず柔らかいのが特徴のメガネ。

Just remember. The U.S. has the largest prison population on Earth, majority of the crimes being non-violent crimes for mainly narcotic's. Mind you that European and Asian corporate and government elites walk around freely invading other nations for narcotics and shipping the worst drugs by the boatloads of fytnal that some how ends up on the streets.

The US Senate has passed a sweeping criminal justice reform bill seeking to address concerns that the US locks up too many of its citizens. The First Step Act, which has been championed by US President Donald Trump, passed by a vote of 87-12. The bipartisan measure found unlikely support from hardline conservatives and progressive liberals alike. The US leads the world in number of jailed citizens. Around 2.2m Americans were in jail in 2016, figures show. The bill, which is expected to be debated in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, would only affect federal prisoners accounting for about 10% of the total US prison population. Moments after the vote passed, President Trump tweeted: "America is the greatest Country in the world and my job is to fight for ALL citizens, even those who have made mistakes."

Privatetized prisons and 2,1 miljon inmates. US gulag system supplies cheap labour to McDonald's, Boeing, Koch Industies, Walmart etc.

A nation is measured by how it tends to the poor, the sick and the outcasts.

Currently there is a prisoner-led prison labor strike happening in the US. Which I have seen very little coverage of beyond a great article in the Guardian which is where this quote/excerpt is from. 
Organizers say prisoners across the country are expected to refuse to work, hold sit-ins and even stage hunger strikes. 
Nineteen days of peaceful protest are planned across the nation, organized largely by prisoners themselves. 
They have put together ten demands. 
1. Immediate improvements to the conditions of prisons and prison policies that recognize the humanity of imprisoned men and women.

2. An immediate end to prison slavery. All persons imprisoned in any place of detention under United States jurisdiction must be paid the prevailing wage in their state or territory for their labor.

3. The Prison Litigation Reform Act must be rescinded, allowing imprisoned humans a proper channel to address grievances and violations of their rights.

4. The Truth in Sentencing Act and the Sentencing Reform Act must be rescinded so that imprisoned humans have a possibility of rehabilitation and parole. No human shall be sentenced to Death by Incarceration or serve any sentence without the possibility of parole.

5. An immediate end to the racial overcharging, over-sentencing, and parole denials of Black and brown humans. Black humans shall no longer be denied parole because the victim of the crime was white, which is a particular problem in southern states.

6. An immediate end to racist gang enhancement laws targeting Black and brown humans.

7. No imprisoned human shall be denied access to rehabilitation programs at their place of detention because of their label as a violent offender.

8. State prisons must be funded specifically to offer more rehabilitation services.

9. Pell grants must be reinstated in all US states and territories.

10. The voting rights of all confined citizens serving prison sentences, pretrial detainees, and so-called “ex-felons” must be counted. Representation is demanded. All voices count!

How You Can Help: spread the word, their demands, and assist in their initiatives to have the votes of people in jail and prison counted in elections
