Nowhere in particular as of yet. I will enter Ms on I-55 and I will just try to make as few stops as possible and spend any money in Mississippi as I pass through with my Skoolie. Mine is a diesel with a big tank and a large refrigerator for ham and cheese sandwiches.

I have no idea if Alabama or Louisiana is better or worse. Hell, now that I think about it; Mo. is just as bad or worse. Maybe I should just drive in circles?

Parchman used to almost fully pay for itself. acres and acres of farm worked by convicts which fed them and what was extra was sold, leather and other goods they hand made and sold, and convicts did most of the repairs/upkeep. put them back to work and make them clean it up.

” inmate, who was serving time for armed robbery, aggravated assault and other charges”
I would never believe anything in a phone call from an inmate.

Reeves himself even admitted conditions at Parchman were terrible.

Look, I get it. These are prisoners. MOST of them are in there because they have broken the law, however, their punishment is to be locked away from society for a specific amount of time, not put into a situation with little to no oversight with unsanitary and purposely unsafe conditions. This is not Thailand. We have constitutional rights that apply to all US citizens. If you value those constitutional rights then you will stand up for theirs too, or it may be your rights they come for next.
