    Re your listverse article: lawsuits don’t work? Really? When sadistic prison staff accused my incarcerated daughter of multiple infractions after she was moved to the pre release center and sought to send her BACK to prison and deprive her of the right to continue getting her degree at a local college, I began a telephone calling, letter writing, lawsuit enacting campaign to prevent them from keeping her locked up and depriving her of an education. I did so on the basis that their actions were without merit and designed to promote recidivism (to wit, they attempted to hold her hearing before it was allowable according to corrections regulations and in a location – my daughter’s prison cell! – equally banned by their own regulations), which in turn allowed them to keep their jobs. The Commissioner himself called me and complimented me on being such a committed advocate for my daughter and stated he was deciding in my favor on the basis that depriving my daughter of her education DID increase the likelihood she would re-offend. Today my daughter is out and has her degree, which made it much easier for her to secure employment with livable wages. People have to stop accepting the shit doled out to them by the (usually corrupt) powers that be; if we are willing to stick to our guns and go the distance, you’d be surprised at the sort of corruption we can stop dead,yes dead, in its insidious tracks. One more thing: I take exception to how you suggested inmates were to blame for the undue misery that accompanies incarceration. Wrong. Corrections is an industry, yes, an industry (just like Eisenhower warned, ditto military)that frequently attracts sadists and corrupt individuals who long to act out against a “captive” audience with compromised rights.

      Thanks for the comment. I’m sorry that your daughter had to go through that and I’m really pleased to hear how well she’s doing now. I don’t think I said that inmates were to blame for the misery they endure. As in many situations, the bad ones ruin it for everyone else. There are many frivolous inmate lawsuits that cloud the vision of the meritorious ones and it makes it hard – especially for inmates who don’t have devoted family members like you – for the valid complaints to be heard. Suing over a confused peanut butter order pales in comparison to what your daughter went through. And you are right: education is our only way out of this mess.
