Uhm, many of these young men and women also happen to be violent felons. They are gang bangers, pimps, and drug pushers who think nothing of taking a young girl, getting her hooked on drugs and then using her as a prostitute to make money for the gang. They are not in prison to enjoy themselves. They are there to serve hard time from crimes against society.

I agree our prison system is imperfect. Worse, it's bad and it definitely discriminates to some degree. We need to find a better way to turn the lives of these young men and women around. But I do not think it is slavery. Slavery took innocents and turned them into less than humans, into property. These people are far from innocent.

As federal prisons run low on guards, nurses and cooks are filling in. Hundreds of secretaries, teachers, counselors, cooks and medical staffers were tapped last year to fill guard posts across the Bureau of Prisons because of acute officer shortages and overtime limits, according to prison records reviewed by USA TODAY and staff interviews. The moves were made despite repeated warnings that the assignments placed unprepared employees at risk. And the practice has continued for years even though the agency has been rebuked by Congress and federal labor arbitrators. Ref. USAToday.

Federal prisons are under national lockdown amid George Floyd protests, the most severe restrictions in 25 years. The federal Bureau of Prisons has imposed a national lockdown amid continuing civil unrest in cities across the country in a move that resembled the agency's response to mass rioting at several of its facilities in 1995. Officials took the restrictive action late Monday as a surge of violent clashes between protesters and police erupted following the death of George Floyd, who died after being pinned under the knee of a Minneapolis police officer. Officials stressed that this week's lockdown was not prompted by inmate actions. Ref. USAToday.
