Prison life creates high levels of stress, both for staff and inmates. Stress is known to reduce immune function. Immune function is further reduced when disease takes hold. Immune systems are conversely strengthened by reduced stress and obtaining super nutrition.
Super nutrition is a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, at least double protein needed to maintain health in ordinary circumstances, and dietary supplements. Some of required supplements are sold through prison commissaries. Prisoners usually need outside support to purchase them. Many more useful supplements are only available from outside suppliers and denied prisoners as a matter of security policy, regardless of how desperate need for them.
For Jimmy and others, Corrections policies are a death sentence. Of course, every prisoner murdered as a matter of policy, opens up a space for someone else. At this point, policy itself is criminal, as is State. I strongly suggest you compare health statistics of prison staff and inmates to those of free society.
Imprisonment is a cruel but usual punishment. Because it is usual, it is lawful. Except in cases of murder and kidnapping, it is never ethical or moral. It fits only those two crimes. When people are caged like animals for any and every social transgression, they become animals, unfit to live with others in civil society. Yet law forces their release and they will prey on society. Many state governments are coming to realization that one- punishment- fits- all crimes policies are not sustainable. Eventually economic costs become overwhelming. Social costs are seldom considered at all. They should be.
I need your help in my effort to save Jimmy's life. He could receive a proper diet with little trouble. Give me permission and some way to get dietary supplements to Jimmy from legitimate suppliers. We would greatly appreciate your help and a timely response in this matter. We thank you for your attention and consideration. Let's save some lives and set examples.
Very Sincerely Yours,
