I have been in and out of the system since 2008. There were times that I may have deserved to be incarcerated, but there were also times like this one [in Milwaukee Secure Detention Facility, or MSDF] that I don’t deserve to be.
Not even offering minimum requirements for prison programming
For MSDF to be considered a prison, they have no kind of programs as far as vocational goes. I’ve been locked up for a month now. I have written the program director just to ask for different modules to do while being incarcerated and I’ve gotten no answer. It’s been two weeks since I sent my request.
I’ve been placed in a “boat” [plastic sled-type bed on floor] for sleeping arrangements at the beginning of my stay here. The food that they serve us, I feel as if I’m getting a children’s plate. For people without money on their books, they used to give soap every other day, now they only give it once a week.
Shut it down
MSDF, in my thoughts, should be shut down. I thank you for allowing me to share my concerns.
