The District of Columbia jail is one of the most unpleasant of the over twenty or so jails and prisons I have visited. My experience would be a picnic compared to what the inmates must endure.
Thanks to a fellow listerv member for getting the word out that the jail is on lockdown until 6 October, and that all legal visits need to be made through the staff entrance. Jon Katz.
