On Saturday evening, a new inmate, who had arrived on Friday, was questioned thoroughly about a lot of Hebrew tattoos he had on his arms. He tried to say that they were Aramaic, but the whites knew better, beat him up and then told him to leave. This is one of the more upsetting incidents because I have so many Jewish friends and family members. The whites here do not allow Jews to be on the yard – at all. In my mind, I want to ask them; “whatever happened to freedom of religion?”, but I cannot. The whole thing makes me so sick.
It’s Monday and I am still thinking about it.
