Cool Housing Not Being Reserved for Prisoners with Heat Restriction
In response to the Texas Update article and the conditions some are facing at Clements Unit I wanted to update you on the Bridgeport Correctional Center. I was placed here due to the Heat Lawsuit as I am under the Heat Restriction. Since I have been here I have come to learn that TDCJ has been using this facility for 30 years. I have noticed that 70% of the people here are under 35 years of age, and have no medical issues that would qualify for any of the Medical Restriction that TDCJ uses to be placed on Heat Restriction. I would say that most are here for protection cuz they would not make it on an ID unit. But we have people in TDCJ with health conditions, like myself, that need to be here.
We have a blatant problem with K2 and most if not all have been caught with the K2 but nothing seems to happen to them. Either these people don’t want TDCJ to know or they just don’t care.
