CLOSING DAWSON STATE JAIL/DALLAS TEXAS

FOOTNOTES ON CLOSING OF DAWSON STATE JAIL/CLOSING DOWN HOPE LITERACY (FAITH BASED EDUCATION PROGRAM)
Yes,the conditions at Dawson are horrid,but I spent time on REAL TDC units that had NO air conditioning,freeze in the winter,and the treatment by bthe guards was 100 times worse...and if Dawson closes,thats what these ladies are facing.From Bad to Worse! Medical is the same all over the units,in fact I had a cellmate die in my 2-man cell(which I posted all over the net in 2000-2001)looking for family members to tell them how Gena Shoulders was left for dead.Long story short...the 20 months I done at Dawson was horrible,unsanitary,and basically not even ran by TDC guidelines,but I DID take what I learned from Hope Lit and made a better life for myself and my family.I understand them wanting Dawson,but I do fear for what lie ahead for the ladies there and the ones after them.Real TDC units are where the REAL nightmare is at.

Have you ever thought of writing a book about your time inside? Most people have no idea how bad it really is.
