This institution is allowing its employees to deprive the inmates (us) of our human rights/constitutional rights. Like most of the time, we are only given the opportunity to shower twice and sometimes once a week! We are being denied adequate cleaning tools and supplies during this COVID-19 era! We are being fed on old trays that have old food stuck to it, meaning we are being fed on dirty trays. Most times, we are not being fed the proper amount of food and are often being served unauthorized, uncoordinated and unacceptable substitutions. We are being denied dayroom and recreation privileges/rights and other things as well.

And on the days that we do take showers, we are being “forced” to “earn” our “right” to shower (by performing certain duties), instead of being [offered] our right to shower.
And since this COVID-19 era, the “Secretary of the State” (Mark Inch) and “JPay” have been giving each Florida inmate 1-free collect call a week, 1-video gram a week, and 4-free emails a week…but for some strange reason, they have deactivated my phone account since last year and is refusing to…
