The outbreak of COVID-19 at Her Majesty’s Prison was expected. The congestion at the prison has not be assisted by the Court system which has been guilty of locking up people for very minor offences.
It appears that the system looking for money from some of us who have not worked for over a year.
So the police lock-up then the magistrate send you up in the jail to expose all those other inmates to the virus or you even pick it up from in the jail.
Why are people being sent up to the jail in this coronavirus times for very simple things sometimes like not being able to pay a simple fine?
Come on these are not criminal offenses, our court system can play a role in the fight against COVID-19.
Our magistrates can exercise some compassion deal with these criminals who are carrying out all these violent crimes who are robbing people but my God give us a break.
The Family Court also must understand that we have a lot of persons not working for over year give persons a little time, the pandemic have us going through a lot.
Some people developing very serious mental issues, it is rough out here only God knows.
Why are our systems failing us at a time when we need they support and compassion lord help us.
