    The DOC needs to be overhauled!!! I have seen how this system has continued to go down hill in the 20 years I have been with my husband. He is up for Parole and even though in 25 year he has had a total of 5 conduct reports and the last one was 10 years ago!! Not 1 is anything that was violent in nature!!
    This Countries Judicial System is so flawed!!! I never realize how much till I got involved in my friends case, who eventually became my husband!!
    The difference in sentencing for Blacks and Whites are as different as night and day!!
    Looking at Minnesota incarceration rates with similar demographics is something everyone should be looking at and see how we can change things here!!
    But the Prisons have become the new Mental Health Facilities!!
    And Vessels of Modern Day Slavery!!!
    God Bless!!
