Another mother grieves a son's death in prison
Thank you for all you do to bring up awareness of our prisons. It amazes me as to how bad we have gotten with no help, I just can't imagine it but here we are! I will continue to pray and if there is anything I can do to help please contact me.
Really powerful, Beth. Please keep up your moving writing on this subject.
Very heart felt and it breaks my heart because I’ve been through over twenty years of this same type of treatment with my son and I give credit to God that he’s at a better place at present and pray daily that it stays that way. Something has to change in this system, it use to not be like this and can be so much better. When society starts to care about all people as Jesus commanded “ love one another as I have loved you” he meant everyone! He didn’t say put them all in prison and treat them like animals and throw away the key! Families and all inmates need hope and this parole board along with Vocal is breaking all rules period ! We all know this and something has to be brought to DOJ and Breau of Prisons and Parols to ensure change is brought forth. Legislators are not making laws for twenty thousand inmate’s families, they are trying to make a name for themselves and it has to stop!
Shannon deserves Justice because he didn’t get the healthcare needed! Most inmates know if you go for health care that they 99% of the time ridicule you and then do nothing and send you out but they will take your 3 dollars off your books and that is if you even get to go, I’ve heard multiple times where a guard will say” there s nothing wrong with you , get your as” back in Your dorm” . After multiple times they try to treat themselves. Prisons get money to take care of these inmates and these employees don’t want to do their jobs or have been told not to treat . I pray for Shannon and his family to have comfort and peace and Justice for his death ! No Mother should have to go through that after that many years because she s already been through hell along with him every time something happened, she has lived it with him! Inmates deserve a second chance especially when they have done the programs and are trying. For all those people that don’t believe in second chances tell God when you need one because you definitely will , scriptures state it! Look it up!
it's hard to find the words to describe this pain... the grief she must feel - it must give way to knowing that her son is finally free and able to go home with her.
Praying for all of the families... Beth thank you for all that you do.... I still would like to speak with you (regarding Jason Means)
My heart goes out to the family of this man, we have to hold these people in Montgomery accountable for each and every death that occurs behind these walls
Thank you for continuing to shed light on this Beth. We cannot turn away from these injustices. Something has to be done.
Thank you for telling it like it is, its not just about doing time, its a fight for survival every minute of every day. Ivey, Marshall, and the rest of the ill informed and ignorant cult in public office that have created and enable this prison environment should be charged with crimes against humanity
Just think of the family of the man he murdered as well that hasnt seen or heard his voice or felt his loving hugs since november of 1997. Also to to the other person that was shot in the head but survived and now has a glass eye.
Praying for healing and peace and all heaven holds to pour into each and every part of every family member.
I wonder if we can get Ben Crump to come to Alabama and fight the inefficiencies that we face as an incarcerated people. The monies families have paid in extortion acts could be put to a much better use. My condolences to all of the families that have suffered such trauma as the story reported... God help us if my prayer!!!
Just morbidly sad but in my mind indicative to the majority those incarcerated across the country. Alabama I’ve learn is amongst the worst in snuffing out life, liberty and earned redemption of those they incarcerate.
