Default Prison Heat--Cruel and Unusual--MissouriCure

The heat in Missouri's prison without air conditioning is intolerable and unacceptable. The Missouri DOC is not doing enough to help Missouri's offenders. Please share your heat-related stories. Missouri Cure is seeking information about how the heat has affected you and your loved ones lives.

Advisory for PTO Members Regarding Requests from Journalists & Members of the Media, and Students/Researchers:

PTO welcomes journalists and/or members of the media to learn and educate themselves about prisons, prisoners, and their loved ones, as well as students and researchers doing research on these subjects.

We will, occasionally, allow the media or students/researchers to request information and personal stories from our members. However, PTO does not endorse any journalist, member of the media, story/report, media outlet, student/researcher, or educational/research institution.

If you decide to communicate with a media representative or a researcher, then you assume all of the risks involved. PTO is in no way liable for the outcome of the story/report/paper. Communication with members of the media and students/researchers is completely voluntarily and PTO holds no responsibility for the consequences of that communication.

PTO does not screen or authenticate any person(s) claiming to be from the media or from an educational/research institution, nor does PTO authenticate their motivations for obtaining the information.

As always, the disclosure of personal information (either yours or someone that is incarcerated) may have some serious repercussions. PTO has no way of predicting how the media or any researcher will present your story or that of your loved one. Any relationship with the media or any researchers is to be entered into at your own risk.

If you receive an unsolicited email or private message from a person claiming to be from the media or researching information for an educational or research institution, report it to the PTO Administration immediately.

Default AC Units Paid For

And don't foget at some of the prisons, like WMCC, the AC Units were paid for and simply disappeared. Inmates suffer, and some have died in the hole because of the heat while the money was spent on these units that no one knows what happened to them.

My man has been told by inmates that it will be over 100 degrees ( he said 100 something but I don't remember) this summer. I am hating it for him...there is really no sense it at all. Jeremy has only asked me for money one time for stamps but he asked for money for a fan this month so he can get one before it gets too miserable. I don't guess there is anything that can be done about it??
