'Jailhouse Stories: Voices of Pretrial Detention in Texas'

Our friends at the Texas Jail Project have produced a new website called "Jailhouse Stories: Voices of Pretrial Detention in Texas," featuring stories they'd gathered on:
  • Poor Medical Care & Death
  • Untreated Mental Illness & Suicide
  • Lack of Care During Pregnancy
  • Lengthy Pretrial Incarceration
  • Solitary & Inhumane Conditions
  • Damage to Family & Community
These stories give a window into the sorts of dramatic narratives the Jail Project gals see in their work every day, told from the perspective of jail inmates and their families. A good site, to spend some time poking around on when you have time, there's a lot there.
