It is unreal that the prisoners at Louisiana State Penitentiary in Angola have no air conditioning! Most of these men share overcrowded dorms, and the others sit in cells. Many go outside in the hot fields all day working, and come back to just fans in this 100-plus terrible humidity!
The animals at the animal shelter have air conditioning, yet we let thousands of inmates suffer in this unbearable weather. We spend money on everything else, yet we can’t help cool all these inmates?
I call that cruel and unusual punishment.
