The Present Danger DoJ v. D.O.C. of Louisiana

The Culture of Policing 

(Correction Officers)

In the letter to the Governor Honorable John Bel Edwards
"and that these violations are pursuant to a pattern and practice of resistance 
 to the full enjoyment of incarcerated persons’ constitutional rights. Specifically, we have reasonable cause to believe that LDOC routinely violates the constitutional rights of people in its custody by incarcerating them past their legal release date." 

The truth of the matter is the young people and all others in 'correctional facilities' in the state of Louisiana, are in attendance of  'schools of pugilistic survival', with many returning to society mean as all hell. 
The inside of a facility directly violates all sorts of human rights, allowing inhumane treatment in battles to merely stay alive. 

Every U. S. Attorney's office
in Louisiana is listed, here. As Dr. King had to make LBJ, by Johnson's own admission; we must do what forced  legislation to be passed to bring forth the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The people of Louisiana in every jurisdiction must act to bring about the necessary change to the "Louisiana Department of Corrections", which operates under limited oversight, as was attested to during state legislative committee hearings surrounding the frenzied state police beating death of Mr. Ronald Greene in 2019. 
And not only that, not a few of the inmates under DOC incarceration are under excessive sentences, a further violation of "cruel and unusual punishment" besides 14th Amendment violations.

Every Louisiana U. S. Attorney should be written to by every citizen affected by D.O.C.'s handling of incarcerated persons, no matter where they are being held. Excessive sentences must be revisited. The time is now.

Corrections officers are turning a blind-eye to embattled violent conditions. Some inmates contend the officers are part of the intense fights, inside prisons. Once released, the community has to deal with the violent state of mind, which has developed behind bars. From the carjackings in New Orleans to the killings in Bastrop, many can be tracked back to "no correction in correctional centers", but perfecting the modus operandi. 

It is evident that mass-demonstrations are required in parishes where DOC prisoners are housed. 

Incarceration is big business for private correction companies.
