Arizona accused of abuses in prisons

Arizona accused of abuses in prisons

My Lakota nephew is incarcerated in the Eyman Prison complex in Florence, AZ and he is an adoptee. He has written many times about the atrocity of living in there. He does not get three meals daily and he's shackled when he goes to the cage for recreation which has no fresh air or sun. His status as a prisoner has been deemed inhumane by Amnesty International in a recent report.
Why are so many minorities incarcerated? Do we see a pattern here? How many adoptees are incarcerated? Those statistics are not available to me. I have asked.
Jess has asked for prayers... so I ask you, my friends, to keep good thoughts until he can be freed. Mitakuye oyasin all my relatives!
