      Here is a court ruling on what is going on in Texas concerning the HEAT INDEX in TEXAS, especially in the WEST TEXAS AREA from Amarillo, Lubbock, Snyder, Abilene, Ft. Stockton, Colorado City, and those down way south close the Mexico and Texas Border, and many more, etc...I am not a ROBOT, I have been doing this work for about 25 years, I have seen, heard, read more of this stuff over and over for all these years, have had contact with many of those who have suffered tremendously due to the heat, expecially the elderly, the sick, the mentally ill, those being held in Solitary Confindment, etc.
      The US 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled that extreme heat can be a violation of prisoner rights:
      "In a case involving a 64-year-old former Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmate who suffered from hypertension and other medical ailments, the federal court in New Orleans held that allowing an inmate to be 'exposed to extreme temperatures can constitute a violation of the Eighth Amendment.' The case was remanded to the district court for a new trial."
      It seems that our cause is not so far off of a goal after all! This is why we need to continue raising awareness and spreading the word! Change will come with the right mixture of civilian outrage and judicial wisdom.
      As long as this issue remains in the news, we have more of a chance to enact change. Please continue to share our petition with family, friends, coworkers, and anyone else that may be interested in our cause. Change will not happen overnight, and we can't do this without you!

       In the West Texas area yesterday it was 108 degrees which makes it about 120 degrees in the TDCJ Inmates Unit/Cells and more of the same today...the Inmates have to wet down their clothing, bedsheets, towels, etc. to put around them to keep cool, hopefully they "ALL" have fans where there is some breeze because the prison units do not allow any shade trees outside where the Inmates can get out of the piercing hot sunburning sunshine in Texas, this is the desert, no shade, lot of skin cancer comes due to the sunshine in this area, plus lot of eye problems due to the brightness of the sunshine...PLEASE SHOW YOU CARE...YOU ARE URGENTLY NEEDED to HELP...thank you Flo, PAPA
