A prisoner’s thoughts re the serious COVID outbreak in Muskegon

With more than 60% of inmates at Muskegon Correctional Facility testing positive, as well as two dozen staff members, Mr. E, who faithfully chronicled all events leading up to the crisis in that prison, writes:

"It is my humble opinion that the administration/warden made the wrong decision(s) at every turn in the road here. I am not a conspiracy theorist, but it appears as though this outcome is exactly what they wanted. This theory was actually voiced by CO Alexander to many of us who locked in 5 unit at the time. There are some who believe that we are part of an experiment in “herd immunity.” The lack of compassion tied to the lack of transparency point to the fact that something is horribly wrong here. Hopefully we can straighten it out and stop the death and suffering."
