    I am certainly not a fan of Knight and if he is proven guilty, he should get whatever the law and jury decide; however, the prison system, especially at the state level, very rarely provides inmates with their necessary and constitutionally required health maintenance. Hopefully we are all aware of the intolerable overcrowding in all prisons due mainly to the ridiculously failed war on drug policies and convictions, plea deals, etc. for non-violent offenses. At least the federal system has a number of Federal Medical Centers around the country which are very much like hospitals and out patient clinics for those inmates who consistently need medical attention or medication. I am unaware of any state level equivalent.
    Please vote for candidates that take an active position regarding prison reform and sentencing reform at both the state and federal levels.

    Diabetes and high blood pressure remains some of the top number killers for the black community. It’s any mans right to adequate health care inside the American level one cages throughout the country. . . Punish a person for his crime and not because of the music his label recorded. . .
