I have recently run across a great blog called Inmates Matter Too (IMT). Like this one, it provides information about prisons and inmates and provides support for their loved ones on the outside. This is taken directly from the website: Source: Inmates Matter Too.
“IMT provides supportive and encouraging posts on Facebook, as well as updates on our prison system and programs helping those inside grow and gain the tools they need to be successful in society, blogs written by prison inmates and community members, a newsletter for inmates, resources to help inmates and their families and with more plans in the works with the expansion of our website.”
It is organized and managed by Jennifer R., who is providing valuable information and is also promoting work by inmates. One of those is inmate and published author, Martin Lockett. His posts range from a post about compassionate care in prison by prisoners, to a well written article about how much prisons cost taxpayers and how little they are getting for their money. Who would pour billions into a company that’s failure rate was almost 70%? Well, we the taxpayers are. This just brings to light how many changes need to be made in our penal system.
Please take a look at this blog and let me know what you think!
