i have a son in that jail right now. he was at a state facility 25 minutes away, but was brought there a week ahead of an appeals hearing in his favor. He came from a medical prison, where he was being treated for his psychiatric problems. it was a minimum custody prison where he was in a dorm with other men, had access to nurses, counselors, a doctor, and the maintenance of his medication. he had clothing he bought from the prison, such as underwear, socks, etc. they threw him in a solitary cell with nothing. his sister sent him a letter, which he never got. he begged for help, wrote a grievance to the captain stating with his mental problems he could not handle being so solitary. last night without my knowledge or his wife or anyone else, he was taken to pender hospital because he tried to hang himself. i cannot get any information from neither the hospital nor the jail until monday. i can however, go see him behind glass on a phone for a whole 15 minutes tomorrow. they need to be thankful my son did not die...my heart goes out to this kids familyl...that whole system up there is atrocious.
