Florida prisons are badly underfunded. Prisoners tell me short-staffing corrections positions allows well-organized gangs a freer hand while some prison officials turn a blind eye. Drugs flow into prison and are distributed by inmates who seem to move freely. Last I checked, there was no mandatory discipline for officers who let inmates in and out of unauthorized housing areas...Russian author Fyodor Dostoevsky said, “The degree of civilization in a society is revealed by entering its prisons.” I have been there, and we are in trouble.
