It is time to shut down Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility (MSDF) and build communities.

I’m one who never thought I would ever see a place like Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility as many times as has happened without committing or being convicted of any new crimes.

I was held captive for the first time in this nine-floor, high-rise, supermax, concentration camp, inhumane, unconstitutional, torture chamber-style prison in 2002 as a stop off on the way to Dodge Correctional Institution.

I’m telling you it was the most miserable two weeks of incarceration I have ever experienced. I remember not being given access to natural air or sunlight, contact visits, recreation, clean clothes, proper hygiene, adequate health care nor appropriate portions of food.

Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service published an opinion piece regarding MSDF by EXPO of Milwaukee Leader Ventae Parrow, who has been detained at MSDF for the past seven months. Click here to read the article.
