Please Read the ACLU Letter to the US Department of Justice requesting a CRIPA investigation of the Florida Department of Corrections
George's Note: The following letter from the ACLU to the US Department of Justice covers only a fraction of the abuses inmates face on a daily basis in the Florida Department of Corrections. Despite DOC Secretary Julie Jones's insistence that improvements have been made, she consistently fails to mention the culture of brutality that is alive and well. Jones is doing little to eliminate a culture that is multi-generational and deeply entrenched.
I'll be on a radio show to speak about the recent letter the ACLU sent the Department of Justice requesting that the DOJ open a CRIPA (Civil Rights of Institutionalized Persons Act) investigation into the Florida Department of Corrections. Joining me on the show will be Randall Berg, Executive Director, Florida Justice Institute. He's sued the FL DOC on countless occasions.
