Michael: I couldn’t breathe

I was released from house of corrections in April 2017. Since that time I have been fully employed, fully insured, paying all my bills and supervision fees. I’ve been studying for my CDL (commercial driver license), with a job waiting for me. I’ve been doing what I’m supposed to do and staying out of trouble. I was asked to come to MSDF to turn myself in for an allegation rule violation to conspire to commit robbery. Since I’ve been here I cannot sleep without my CPAP machine. I broke it because I was forced to have a boat, which is a plastic bed made to mimic a row boat put into a tiny cell. I flipped it on the floor because of space. I woke up calling that I was out breath….I cannot breathe. The response from the officer working was, “Let me know how that works out for you!” Guards talk to you like you committed murder. I’m losing my home, job, money and freedom because of this rule violation. I hope that whenever I’m released, I get back out and continue the positive things I’ve done in the community and pass my CDL test so I can drive truck and pay my bills and stay outta trouble.
