    Default Texas Punishes Prisoners by Killing Them With Heat Stroke





    Texas Punishes Prisoners by Killing Them With Heat Stroke


    The state of Texas is, as one would expect of Satan's favored playground, hot. Texas is also "tough on crime," meaning it enjoys locking people in jails but cares little what happens to them afterwards. So while Americans love air conditioning for themselves, Texans don't see the point of giving it to prisoners. What next—water?

    The NYT reports that two lawsuits have been filed by prisoners in Texas, where only a fifth of the state's prisons are air conditioned.
    An appeal is pending in a lawsuit initially filed in 2008 by a former inmate claiming that 54 prisoners were exposed to Death Valley-like conditions at a South Texas prison where the heat index exceeded 126 degrees for 10 days indoors... A Texas law requires county jails to maintain temperature levels between 65 and 85 degrees, but the law does not apply to state prisons.
    Four (4) (FOUR) Texas inmates died from the heat last summer. Four. Dead. That is a problem.

    Texas should only have air conditioning in prison, and nowhere else.

    This is the very definition of uncivilized.

    Isn't Texas the same state whose government wanted to cut lunch out for prisoners?

    Nothing new for Texas. It won't change until more of the public cares about prison reform. In other words, don't hold your breath for changes anytime soon.

    I'm sorry, but as someone who lives in Texas, I find this repulsive.

    We may be tough on crime, but there is no excuse to be inhumane.

    This is pretty barbaric. 126 degrees? Damn. That's just sick that the law to maintain temperature doesn't apply to prisons.

    I'm all for being tough on crime, but this is insane.

    As someone who has a family member in prison right now, I can tell you that this is true! I was disgusted when he told me this! This shit is beyond inhumane!

    State Senator John Whitmire, a Democrat from Houston and chairman of the Senate Criminal Justice Committee, said he was concerned about the inmate deaths but wanted to examine the circumstances of each. He said he was not sympathetic to complaints about a lack of air-conditioning, partly out of concern about the costs, but also out of principle.
    “Texans are not motivated to air-condition inmates,” he said. “These people are sex offenders, rapists, murderers. And we’re going to pay for their air-conditioning when I can’t go down the street and provide air-conditioning to hard-working, taxpaying citizens?”

    one of the dead prisoners was serving 11 months for forgery. i don't think that warranted his being roasted to death.

    ^^That's exactly right. I've known people who have gone to prison because they made fucked up decisions. Not everyone in prison is a child molester, murderer or rapist.
