Nearly 27% of Louisiana state inmates are held beyond their release dates, US Justice Department says | Category: General Source
Of those held beyond their release dates, 24% were held for at least 90 extra days.
Oh that’s just *wrong* like deeply and seriously wrong. I understand holding a person for 10 days after because sometimes shit is just out of order and papers need to get signed but *90* wtf
Can’t they sue for false imprisonment?
I’d love to see the statistics on this for every state. Our justice system a joke.
were any of them white?
These confederate states do seem to have a bit of a reputation.
Shocked Pikachu face.
Meanwhile, my dad stabs two people and only gets nine months in jail.
Conservatives think that no matter what if you were convicted of you deserve either death or life in prison. And no chance to rehabilitate into society.
Let me guess – Louisiana state prisons are privately run?
I can see this happening in private owned prisons, absolutely. Gotta get that little bit of extra cash for that extended stay.
THERE IS ONLY ONE WAY OUT
Rhetorical question; why do justice systems so often seem to commit more crimes and abuse than the inmates?
Governor of Texas/Florida; “I was conned and trafficked across state lines.”
Louisiana prison inc.; “I was held against my will for years in a small cage, fed only dog food and was abused constantly — illegally.”
I’m in jail for not being able to afford my fine/court fees; around 70%+ of the people in jail in some areas.
This is unbelievable news and I’m glad I read it, but it’s in the wrong subreddit. Not oniony, not funny.
I bet they get charged rent.
Though in American society incarcerated persons aren’t considered human, it feels like in southern GOP controlled states; they take the brutality and malice to a whole other level.
So… that’s not illegal? Really does show that you can do anything as long as you have money and power.
Sounds like Louisiana needs to lose some federal funding until they sort this out.
