I was a little shocked when I watched this news story.
The horrors that these families must bear!
Con game or not, something needs to be done!
I understand that when you land yourself into jail that you forgo and give up some of your freedoms and liberties; however, that shouldn’t mean that your family lives in fear and becomes a victim of extortion.
If this was happening to other sectors of society there would most certainly be an outcry, but because these are families of inmates, people view their plight with far less compassion—which is wrong. It’s clear that while criminals have been locked up for our protection, far little is being done to protect them while they serve their time.
Something needs to be done about this!
